Now supplied as a silenced bypass pipe, in 100% polished 304 Stainless Steel, complete with all fixing bolts and gaskets.
100% Stainless steel catalytic convertor by-pass pipe (cat replacement pipe). For the removal of the catalytic convertor from the exhaust system.
All Mk1 1989>1998
There are three different cats fitted to the Mk1,
1.6 or 1.8 upto 1994. This cat is 370mm in length.
1.6 or 1.8 from 1994 to 1996. This cat is 440mm in length.
1.6 or 1.8 1996/8. This cat is 475mm in length. A cat replacement pipe is NOT available for this model.
The safest way to ensure you order the correct pipe is to measure the distance between the two mounting flanges of your existing cat.
Supplied complete with gaskets and bolts.
Please Note: As from January 1st 2012, the UK MOT laws changed regarding catalytic convertors. Any vehicle built after 1992, MUST have a catalytic convertor fitted regardless of whether or not it passes an emissions test. Any car presented without a cat fitted will fail. We would advise checking with your MOT tester before fitting this pipe if the car is being used on the road.
Even though this is a 'silenced' bypass pipe, the removal of the catalytic convertor WILL result in an increase in exhaust noise! Some like it, others do not. Beware!
