Hi all, I have a 1998 1.9TD 888 Special and the front exhaust section which includes the CAT is rusty and about to fall off.

Can anyone tell me if I can use a pipe from another T4 as a decat pipe? I went to my local motor factors but they were being nod 'eds saying saying they would only sell me the right one for the van:*

Cheers

Jay

Try online automotive mate. If its a three bolt flange onto the downpipe you could buy a 2.4d front section which is just a silencer. Thats what i use and it makes a fair bit of difference to the midrange power.
