1991 cat and Ebpv removal - pipe replacement


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Quick ask before I take her down to the fabricators

I have a cat converter - it's empty - so does not useful purpose. The Ebpv has been long since bodged. I now have an issue where the one of the three flange holes on the bottom of he cat has busted off and now the exhaust blows - yes very boy racer - but not the sound for me.

Is there and off the shelf pipe that replaces both the cat and the Ebpv?

Check SJ-Sportscars. I think they might have a decat. If it's anything like their race catalyst then the length will compensate for the lack of EBPV so you just have Turbo --> Cat --> Exhaust in the chain.

Cheers chaps - I looked on sj sports website and can't find anything

I shall give them a ring on the morning - it's either that or have a bit made tomorrow - any idea roughly how much you paid for the sj option?

When I did my EBPV I simply removed the butterfly and the shaft and reinstalled it so it looks original. Cheap.

 

Never done the cat yet.

 

Meant to add that I blocked the EBPV vacuum line as well.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

One of the three holes has busted of the bottom of the cat - it maybe they can't weld a nut on there - we will see in the morning.

I need to get my two post lift working!!!

Did you retain the EBPV per chance?
