VW catalytic converter. Catalytic convertors clean the exhaust gases using heat and a chemical reaction. If the engine stays in tune, converters operate worry free for a very long time. If you have kept a poor running car, just to make it "a few more miles" the convertor can plug up and damage the other parts. If it rust through or becomes blocked, it's time to replace it. This is an original equipment, direct fit, high quality converter with integrated downpipe. This version uses a 4 bolt flange.
You may find it easier to remove a lot of your old rusty hardware when you install the catalytic convertor, so purchase the install kit shown below to replace your old hardware. When replacing your catalytic convertor inspect the rest of your exhaust system for rust and damage. Purchase one of our complete exhaust kits listed below for a factory fit.
