Default WTB: test pipe or old pipe w/cat for a 1.8l?

As title says, I need the test pipe or catalytic converter (bolt in) for a '96 1.8l car. Please let me know what you have.

Absolutely they are! How much do you want for them? I live in Florida, zip code 33785. I'll PM you my cell number.

EDIT: That car looks REALLY familiar.

EDIT 2: Holy crap, that was Stace's car wasn't it?

Yep it was Stace's. How soon do you need these items and what is a fair value? I can take pics. The test pipe is still in the car. I think it is about 2.25 or 2.5 inch with an oxygen sensor bung in it. If it doesn't matter I might take the sensor bung out and block it off before I get rid of it. I am wanting to make a 3 inch test pipe. Converter is a bolt in unit. Looks good on the inside and has a few scratches on the outside.

I would like them ASAP. Preferably before next weekend. I think I would rather have the test pipe, and the bung is all you if you want it. I would rather have it blocked off anyway. Could you do $35 shipped for it? I could paypal you whenever, even this evening.

Yea I can probably do that. I'll have to get off my rear and get it out from under the car tonight and work on it tomorrow.

How are you doing payment? Paypal?

Yeah, just let me know when you are ready to ship it out and I will send you a paypal payment for it. I can send it now if it would be easier for you, just PM me your paypal address. The address paypal has for me is current and confirmed so you can use that one for shipping.

Looks like the exhaust is in and installed. A friend let me use his catalytic converter to make sure everything fit.

I am still going to need a bolt in test pipe or a bolt in catalytic converter for the 1.8l engine. Looks like eBay has brand new high flow Magnaflow cat's for $108 shipped, and test pipes for $70 shipped. I don't really care which one I get, because the car is super quiet right now and I could put in a test pipe without it really increasing the volume much. Let me know what you've got. I would rather get a test pipe.

Ok. If I were you I would find a test pipe. I'm really sorry I didn't have the test pipe like I thought. I'm glad you were able to get something quickly to try out.

A shop should be able to whip out a test pipe pretty easy too or I see they have those on Ebay for about $40.
