Been a long while since I last stopped by, but I need some help if anyone is local to the SF Bay (California) and knows a good muffler shop...
Last night had the joy of having my cat -almost- stolen and thankfully the thieves darted before finishing their second cut...
Van is an early 1997... It likely needed a new exhaust system anyways. I wanted to do a high, before-axle exit- lose some trivial weight and not have to worry about snagging the exhaust on anything anymore. I was thinking about making/having a shop make a removable section of the exhaust for the catalytic converter, keeping the cat somewhere safe and just having a section of straight 3" pipe/resonator in its place when parked
(..... or for off-road use only
....). I'm sure running without cats is very illegal and I love all of the regulation CA has to offer.
Anyways..... Apologies for my sour mood. Does anyone have good recommendations for fixing, besides using hi-temp epoxy and exhaust clamps, leaving the cat there for them to try a second time?
Thanks for any help/suggestion
