    Cheap option is to do a cut n shut - cut the one piece section and weld a flange on the part u chopped then the precat will fit onto it

    or buy an off the shelf sports cat and join the 2...... obviously sports cat retails at £200-300+

    Thats the way i went on mine as i had the one piece like you

    front precat is not a legal requirement and fitting a decat precat will NOT bring on the light

    makes a massive difference too and ideal first mod for any turbo owner

    You can also fit the cat section from a car fitted with the 2 piece cat sections.
