Default 95 Geo Tracker exhaust system.

Next on the list for my 95 16 valve 4X4 geo Tracker is the exhaust. I have repaired it for the last time. The section that comes down from the manifold and connects to the catalytic converter, as well as the catalytic converter to the muffler and back are shot.
I was looking at this: Direct Fit Catalytic Converter by Maremont not for Sale in California 29570 | eBay
Anyone here try this method. Converter built right in to the pipe?
Any thoughts are appreciated.
Thanks

You should check you exhaust manifold to be sure which exhaust pipe you have. The one in the link you showed is 2 pipes side by side coming down into one pipe before the catalytic converter. I have a 94 Geo Tracker that uses that pipe. But my 95 Geo Tracker is a single pipe coming down to the cat. Just a word of caution.

Nice catch with a rather poor pic.



Can't beat the shipping either. FREE!

Does anybody think that without that flexible joint at the CAT you might be putting unwanted stress's on the manifold ?

IF an OE install was equipped with one, then I'd say yes!

I'll climb under there this afternoon. I do remember seeing a joint with a couple springs on it. Everyting in that area is so rusted, it's hard to tell what's there. I do believe there are springs up by the manifold as well. Maybe that will take some of the stress.
I will also see if it is a two pipe to one system, as I was wondering about that myself.

If you saw springs by the manifold, it is the one big pipe down pipe and not the two small pipes. The two small pipe downpipe is connected with three bolts/studs and no springs. The larger single pipe with springs seems to be later design, but implemented at different times in different markets.

I suspect the lack of "flex sections" would contribute to manifold cracking.

FWIW, my GV employes BOTH a corrugated pipe "flex" section AND the spring loaded donut gasket joint. There's a lot of movement potential to contend with there.

Thanks for the advice. Mine is one big pipe, not two. And the whole thing about stressing the manifold makes perfect sense.
Nice to have a place to bounce ideas around.
