I think the cat. has a three bolt join to the extractors and is welded (don't hold me to that, it maybe a join) to the pipe at end to the muffler, so it might prove to be a bit of a task to find out.


Even if you can only get to one end the muffler should drop down away from the cat enough to poke a torch in and have a squizz.


Well I had a look and it seems that it is a three bolt join at the front and a 2 bolt at the back. So I'll be taking that off on the weekend and haven' look. I hope that is the problem but I have a feeling its not. I'll let yas know what the outcome is. Thanks.

There's no way to tell in a manual unfortunately. Usually the first sign you get is burnt valves and a leaking head gasket :(



PS: Manuals are exactly the same as auto's (mine pictured above is a manual) :P

My friend sed he hollowed his out and bolted it around a straight through pipe, possible? A picture of the cat convertor would be realy helpful :oops: :lol:

If caught removing or modifying at cat converter, its a $10,000 fine for individuals, or $50,000(i think) for a company. But if you do decide to hollow it out, make sure you put a piece of exhaust through it, having a big empty space in the middle of your exhaust is gunna do nothing for performance/fuel economy.
A mate of mine had a similar problem in his EB, changed dizzy, leads, plugs. turned out to be a stretched throttle cable.
