Hey just swapping my exhaust systems around from my eb that got smashed into and putting it onto my ford el. The exhaust will fit no probs but i was told by a shop the highflow cat might be a different offset?..i mean i doubt it bcuz u know what shops are like but im after second opinions and if anyones done it yeah lemme know. Cheers peter.

Im fitting the entire exhaust system, from the tip of the exhaust to the end of the cat converter where it meets the extractors.

Chucking it on my el without extractors bcuz they're illegal for p platers in melbourne even tho my eb had em dont fancy losing demerit points almost did few days ago lol.

If ur using the stock exhaust manifold with a cat modified for extractors it will not fit.
So if u had extrators with that cat and u want to put back on the stock ford exhaust manifold the cat won't be long enough to reach the manifold flange

Yes they can. when u got the extractors put on they would of cut the cat shorter and welded on a flange, just take the stock exhaust manifold there on the car or the cat, however u are going to do it, and get them to make the cat longer so it joins up to the stock manifold,

No probs mate it's as easy as going to the exhaust shop and asking them so make this cat fit this manifold
