    Catalytic Converter

    I shall be mostly phoning Thorney on Monday to pay for my Milltek precat and cat back as part of the group buy.

    I've got an older coupe though with the combined precat / main cat. I don't want to put a sports cat on there as I've read mixed reports regarding them being too noisey. I've also been quoted silly money for a new OEM separate Vauxhall cat.

    So do I ...
    • Source a second hand one from somewhere? If anyones got one who's reading this and lives somewhere near the Midlands or near Thorney (as I'll be going there to get the Milltek fitted) please PM me. Or if anyone knows of a decent place I can source a second hand one.

    • Or does anyone know a decent exhaust place in the Midlands that would be able to cut my old cat out, fit the precat replacement pipe and weld a flange onto my old cat?
    Cheers
    Craig

    Has anyone had this done before? Just want to be confident the seal is going to be good and the exhaust isn't going to blow!

    I think my mate has a main cat from a two piece set up in his shed.

    Not sure how much he wants but will ask.
