Just curious as to whether this is a particular aftermarket setup or is it custom made?

Looks custom to me but could be wrong, if it was scorpion/magnex etc it would say on it somewhere.

Its not a magnex, but looks similar to my old long life backbox. I think the mid section is custom though. That will be raspy a you like... Wink

It's an aftermarket cat too. Yes

I must admit, it does look like a Mongoose exhaust from memory, but I could be wrong.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like its definitely a mongoose. The decat looks like a custom job though judging from the condition of the welds. Wonder why the heat shield was left on!??

Thats an aftermarket pattern part CAT not a decat...it could be a home-made decat though where somebody has knocked the innards out of the unit.

Yeah, I thought it was a CAT at first but then I stuck a metal rod down it and it went straight through. Also it appears to have been cut then welded again. Although strangely the first time i stuck something down it i thought I felt a core but maybe I was just hitting the walls... (damn, doubts, now i have to recheck it)

It was irritating me LOL I knew I recognised it.

See if you can get hold of a devil decat or a second hand genuine cat.

Assuming that the mongoose system hadn't been cut around.

Those systems cost a fortune new! Shock
