So im in FL on vacation! I was searching the i-net today and cam accross a great deal... autoanything.com i found a Banks Monster Exhaust for $269.00 shipped. didn't have to pay for shipping, and saved another $15 for ordering it over the phone, and it ship's directly from Banks in CA! Complete Stainless system, with polished muffler and tip. (cat back)
My stock cat has "the rattle". Its breaking apart on the inside and needs to be cleaned out.
Heres my thoughts
Im going to take off the old "cat back" system. Then i will cut off the cat, close to its seem. once i have the cat off i would just like to "punch it out", take a broom handle and chunk out the rest of the insides clean it right out.
Then i would get an adapter and clamp the cat back on, or should i unbolt the exhaust pipe just below the manifold, snake it out, weld the cat back on to it, bolt everything back up, then bolt up my new "Banks Monster Exhaust / Cat back System"
Should i weld or clamp, and also is this a good idea to do this to the cat, and if i unbolt the exhaust below the manifold will i need a new gasket when i bolt it back up? Has anyone came accross this type of thing? you had a new cat back exhaust system but needed to take off and repair the stock cat....
