    Default 1.9 150 Main cat drilling

    Im thinking about drilling out the guts on the main cat converter and was wondering if i just need a long drill bit or are the internals like the Pre cat and made of metal?

    Also, will i need to remove the exhaust section and tip it up so all the bits come out?

    Thanks

    nope it is a normal cat... all you need is a big drill bit and a long chisel and bash the lot out

    I used a meter long SDS drill bit and a length of angle bar and a hammer.

    Dont forget it will also need to be mapped out.

    Oww and ofcourse you need to take it of the car and make sure you get all the bits out... if you don't they might clog up the pipe down the line or the rear exhaust box(es).. you used to be able to take the catalytic material and sell it to a scrappy but the ones around mine stopped buying the material as they have no way of checking if it hasn't been weighted down with non-catalytic material (read sand ect)
