Default WTB 1.8 test pipe

Cat is rattling, might be the core or the heatshield, either way its gotta go!

Anyone have a test pipe for sale?

I've had good luck with ebay testpipes, looks like you can get one shipped for $66 if you haven't checked there yet.

Take a piece of rebar and a hammer and just knock all of the guts out of the cat. It's not like it's difficult.

I've considered this, but it just seems like having a big empty chamber would make more racket than a rattling core or heat shield.

It's free and if you don't like it you can still buy a test pipe. Where's the loss?

Very true. I think I'll give this a shot since the cat is pretty much scrap anyways

My hollowed cat made a VERY annoying ringing sound due to the open chamber.
