    catylitic convertor. Its a big round thing on the exhaust basically. on the x16xel there is a heatshield over the manifold but you can still se the 4 branches quickly going into 1 with no large box. on the z16xe the manifold comes away from the engine and straight into the cat which is a large cylinder right infront of the engine. not great but its about as good as my worded descriptions get
