I need to get under it and do some banging around and see if the cat is broken up on the inside, but I noticed something. Did they put 2 cats on the 1995 F150's with a 5.8L. It looks like it has two anyway, two pipes come out of the engine and come together in what looks like the first cat then the pipe continues for about a foot and a half and goes into what looks like another cat.
What do you guys think?
Its not just the 95. I'm fairly sure it is a ruble cat system. But I've also heard the second one is a resonator. But when I looked up exhaust stuff for my truck (92/302) there were cat converters labeled "front" (which all pretty much looked like the stock one) and "rear".
