if they are full length extractors you are going to need to cut your stock cat to size to fit it.

they go into 2 pipes at the end then 1 kind of i dunno new to this i always have had stock systems

so quite easy to cut the stock cat , i can weld pretty well so i hope i can do it

or im thinking of a "test' pipe hehe

but at least i got the pipe which goes onto the extractor's due to the 02 sensor is on that pipe

wreckers cut the cat out to recycle it idots :(

Look like Genie Short runners. Easy enough to mod the stock cat to fit.

Do the cut and shut on the front of the cat. leave the back end alone.

ok will do , also the big rust bulky sheat metal around the cat etc, is that just a "heat shield" / cover?

and one more thing , ive separated the manifold but i snapped 1 bolt one of the bolts which lead to the pipe leading to the cat , reckon its possible to be able to drop it out or it just wont fit

You will need to move you whole cat back a bit, either by cutting the front of your catback or the back of the cat pipe and shortening it.

And as for a test pipe, go for it if you want, but there's really no need if your cat is in good nick. It's just risking a fine, plus the exhaust fumes stink pretty badly. When I installed my Pacemakers it was kind of tricky to get all the angles lined up. Make sure your catback isn't pushed backwards or to the side, or it can rattle on things/contact the diff when you go over a speedbump.

If that's the way the extractors line up to the cat, chop a length of the pipe on the cat and weld on the flange to fit. Obviously make sure the angles are correct...so measure twice, spot weld, mark any changes, measure again, cut/weld if need be. Once everything lines up nice and schmick, weld it all up.
