Two catalytic converters? Seriously?
Hey everyone, so the other day I went out and bought a new magnaflow cat and glasspack for my 1993 bronco 5.0. Stupid me never thought to check the exhaust before I bought them, sort of an impulse buy. Sooo now I'm trying to work with what I've got. I notice that the first cat(?) is also a sort of y pipe. I was wondering if I could punch this out and use it just as the y pipe and run the other cat behind it and not have any problems. I also noticed how tight the spaces are underneath the truck, what do you guys use to cut your pipes? I did the exhaust on my 83 pickup and there was enough room to shove a hacksaw up there. Should I buy a pipe cutter? I've only got a few days to get this done, then its back off to school so I can't really order parts and the exhaust leak is driving me nuts. Thanks a lot guys, you're always a ton of help.
