    looking into off road y pipe

    I am thinking about putting a off road y pipe on my 99 T.A. It has stock exhaust manifolds on it. Do they make one that you can swap your catted y pipe back on?

    I know most people probably wouldn't agree with me but I'm gonna tell you what I should've done when I first started modding. Just buy a cutout and put it on. $30+ $20 for someone to weld it on. $50 and with stock manifolds and cats you can run it open 24/7 pretty much.

    The only Y-pipe that I'm aware of that works on stock manifolds is the SLP y-pipe. There may be others but that's the only one I can think of right now. I don't know of any that you can swap just the cats back and forth on with stock manifolds. If you found the right exhaust shop you may be able to get someone to fab you up a piece of pipe and weld flanges onto it, your cats, and stock Y and just swap them that way.
    Why not just do longtubes with an ORY and be done with it?
