On a 5th gen GT... NON Cali.

The ONLY cat is attached directly to the exhaust manifold, yes?

The cat-ish looking thing after the flex pipe is a resonator?

Then WHY the HELL won't the local exhaust shop weld up my pipe deleting that resonator, saying that they would need to replace the "cat" there?

Or is there some weird law that says you HAVE to have a resonator?

Sounds like you need a new exhaust shop.

Yes, the only catalytic converter on your car, is the one attached to your manifold.

The other thing IS a resonator.

Tell your local exhaust shot to suck a cawk and find some ricer shop that will do it.

Or just unbolt your exhaust and tell them it fell off and you need a new one.

It's just clamped together right now. I want it welded.

I don't want a new exhaust. Just my pipes welded.

So the consensus is that they're retarded and i am doing NOTHING illegal?

Right. So best bet is to find a mom & pop shop and offer them $50 bucks for the job. Even though you have everything ready it should only be a 15min job (thus a $25 dollar job). The extra is to get it fucking done with no questions.

Alright, cool. I just want it welded up to make sure NOTHING is leaking. I'm re-doing my exhaust manifold studs and gasket this weekend, and would like a quiet car. :D

Yeah, you're fine.
