    Cowboys Pre cat

    Well This was on a car From a uk bassed company
    Not going to post up the name
    Why o Why would you do this unless the customer asked for it ?
    Looking at the Welds it looks like its taken some time to do at First you can not tell its been done looks like a std part

    The Black stuff is Plastic from the Front Fan



    I removed this from a Stage 2 car
    I cut some of the Silver cover off the top to have a look how it was done
    some one had taken a lot of time to do this

    The old 'Pikey Precat'....

    Take it apart, remove cat and weld back up.

    It will do the job, but is very time consuming and labour intensive...also not fantastic flow characteristics...

    I think you should name the company Danny without being inflamatory, so that people can be aware of whether they want to purchase items from this company for future reference.

    I did something similar to mine when i was changing the turbo, apart from i cut the 3 welds on each side of the cat that held the catalyist bit inside in place then cut a hole big enough to remove the inners out then welded it back up never cost me anything to do and you notice the diff when driving it. £100 better off in my wallet for the same effect as the fancy ones for sale in my opinion.

    Maybe it was done a while go when precats were loads of money or were not available.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
