Really? if you look at the diagram, there's a small clamp if you have a CAT and a larger coupling if it's a straight pipe. Hopefully that's the case if not, I have someone close by that can weld.
yea, the decat pipe is shorter than the catalyzer. Even if you were to trust that larger coupling to bridge the gap, I don't think it was big enough. (I picked up the part at our dealer, and saw a bit of what the guy was doing to Tex's yesterday).
The non-federal downpipe has to be longer than ours, and I'd bet that's the only difference. Seems silly, really... can't see how having two downpipes is in any way better/cheaper than just making this decat pipe the right length.
