Cat for 97-00 156 2.5 V6 - Different?
Looking to replace the cat on my 1999 model 156 2.5 V6 as it is starting to leak. I've heard sport cats can be a bit loud so I've decided just to go for a (good quality) standard replacement.
The thing is, it looks as though the 2.5 V6 has a different cat to the 4-cyl ones, looks like the actual body of it is longer. I've seen cats for sale which claim to be for all the petrol models, but the design looks totally different, I think they're designed around the 4-cyl ones. I'm sure it would fit due to being the same length (I imagine) hence why they advertise them, but on the other hand I get the impression it will be more restrictive. Bosal have a different part number for the 2.5 cat, so surely it must be different.
Basically just a few quick questions really:-
1. Is the 2.5 cat different to the rest?
2. If so, does anyone know a specific replacement?
