How hard is it to replace the catalytic converter? is it direct bolt off bolt on?

And also how hard is it to replace the rest of the exhaust, that is the muffler set (excluding the manifold)

Do the full system, shop / call around for the best prices. You want to notice the difference, and it's worth the wait to get the lot done in one hit.

what are flanges? are they the bits that the bolt goes through to hold the exhaust parts to the underpart of the car?

I bought my extractors from the quokka, my exhaust from an ebay shop called scottsrods and my 3 inch magnaflow cat from ebay too..

I put the exhaust and extractors in myself without issue and then dropped the car off at an exhaust place to have him install the cat..

don't let them keep your old cat unless you make a deal as it's worth some $$$ to recycle places.

Yeah man, that's what a full sys would be. You will like ;) Pacemakers are very nice, you could get away with some used ones as long they're not cracked. Mine were used, and work awesome.

What crack are you on?

Will need to weld flange(s) onto the cat.
