dead cat

i think my catalytic converter is dead (or very close to it).
1. Is it easy to replace yourself?
2. How much should they cost and from where ?
3. does anyone want to guess how much Quikfit will quote me ?

Cats Direct

Might be for your GTV. Check it out first though. Not difficult to fit and you will want a fitting kit too.

There are other sites as well.

quikfit man says cat ok but centre section needs replacing and some of the heat shield has come loose - which he showed me.
Does anyone know what to do with the heat shield ?
can it come off or should it be put back in place?

check out your local custom exhaust shop.

i went cat back plus both flexis to a quad exit exhaust a while ago for about 700. asked about cat and down pipes and was quoted 475 all in ss downs and a sports cell ss cat. worth shopping about a sports cat would give the gtv a fair kick up the behind
