i have a 03 wrx and the clutch is slipping pretty severly. i took it in today to have it looked at and the mechanic confirmed my analysis (they didnt the first time ). insted of begining work (i assume they are covering it) i get a call that says they can't do the job untill i replace my catless system (helix dp an borsal cat back) for one with a cat because reassembleing the car without it would be illegal. this sound fairly reasonable, but i bought the car with a TBE already installed. so, now i have to scramble to find the necessary part.
Is the only cat containing part the down pipe (up pipe still stock)? will the stock downpipe fit my borsal exhaust?
i only need to get it home, so i can switch it back, is there a cheaper and dirtier method im over looking. i just want them to touch my stuff as little as possible. i really dont trust their mechanics
