    Does anyone know of a performance silencer box you can buy to replace the CAT?

    Don't want a full exhaust system, just the CAT.

    The cat is right up by the engine just as it comes of the turbo, so would have to be a full system AKA cat back

    I didnt replace anything. Just hollowed out the existing cats in the exhaust and put in a custom 76mm Down-pipe.

    I was thinkin of that but apparently they might bring in an emissions law in SA quite soon so wanted to keep the CAT so i could put it back in if there were any problems.

    Spoke to a service manager and he was saying the guys are using a thing called a 'bottle' or something, which just goes in place of the CAT.
