How many of the pipes on the SH contain CATS? How many of these can be removed without having an affect on passing emissions testing or causing odor?
Thanks a lot for this, just to clarify for myself - So the only pipe on the SH that contains a cat is the downpipe? So basically, if I replace the downpipe make sure to get a cat'ed one?Seems like theres an upper and lower Cat on our models. Depends on how they do your emissions test. Many places will only check for a CEL light and not check the actual emissions on a newer vehicle. You can always put a higher flowing catylitic converter in place. The Catted CNT downpipe is the cheapest i know of. Something in the mid 300 dollar range for the whole pipe. You'll want a tune after switching though.
Edit: Only 1 pipe contains both cats. There is no cat on the uppipe like the older models. The downpipe coming out of the turbo is the only pipe. The mid pipe contains a resonator thats kinda boxy and flat but it's not a cat.
