Default T4 3 bolt exhaust flange ? Decat pipe ?

Hi All , need some help please.

Own a T4 2.0 AAC Petrol 1993 with a Cat fiited as in Picture.



i am wishing to fit a decat pipe but i need to know if this 3 bolt flange is the same size as the de-cat pipes that are being sold
as none really show up for Petrol models on my year caravelle. The decat below is listed as a diesel 96> onwards so does anyone know if this will fit or if the 3 bolt flange sizes are different. I found out the rear pipe exit of my cat is 50mm and this decat pipe below exit has a o/d of 55mm.




Cheers.

Hi there Top Banana,

Did you ever find out about if the non-cat pipe fits the standard 3-bolt flange?

doing the above will cause your van to fail the MOT.

there needs to be a "CAT" visible.

The flange is different on the petrol motor, slightly larger, if my memory serves me correct, you'll have to check on the cat situation Pre 93 petrol motors don't need a cat but like I say double check. I can by the way supply a decat, dummy cat or full fat sports cat pipe for the petrol motors.

Mine's a 1995 2.0 AAC. The pipe sheared at the joint between the front pipe (where the Cat is) and the centre pipe. The rest of the system seems ok so I might just fix the joint as 250 for a new Cat is a bit steep when all that is wrong is the joint. Thanks for your quick replies.
