Hi Andrew.

If you can't weld, then this is not a DIY job.

It is easy to bolt the headers on to the head, but then you need to cut the Cat pipe shorter, weld on a flange to mate with the end of the Pacies.

You could take them to an exhaust shop, and ask how much to fit the whole lot, and then ask how much to just to the welding part, if you fit the pipes etc.

Cheers
BenJ

yep, if it has a cat, that means it will already have a flange welded on the extractors.
but unless the car has a pipe that extends to where the standard cat would normaly end, you will need a pipe made up to go between the cat on the new extractors and the start of the cat back exchaust.

but if the new extractors have a cat that joins up to a normal cat back exhaust, you would be able to bolt it all up at home.

Id just take the cat to a exhaust shop and ask them to fit it for you, usually can get a full cat back exhaust supplied and fitted for under 300 bucks so i cant imagine it would be that expensive for them to just weld the flanges on the end and fit it for you while its on the hoist.
