    Default 3.2 Petrol Manifold/Cat Replacement?

    Hello,

    Anyone got any info or usefull tips for replacing the cat's on the 3.2 petrol? Sounds like mine have callapsed after 165k miles, not a mjor problem at the moment, but when allowing the car to slow down on it's own while in gear she makes a nasty rattle, which gets annoying after a while.

    Does anyone know how they are? Are there none vauxhall alternatives? Any one had to do them on their car already?

    I know, it's going to be a pain in the arse and cost the earth, I just want to be prepared for it before I ring my vaux dealer.. :-(

    Cheers

    I don't know why I didn't think of that my self. Just got both, £60 each with lambda's fitted too!

    Now, just need to get dirty!

    Does anyone know how much they cost new?

    Correct, I am also led to believe they are the same manifolds as the 2.6 V6 vectra B's
