Cats on 6/86 build Brumby?

Post by StephenMcVeagh » Wed May 12, 2021 11:54 am

Hi all you Brumby experts!...I have just a 6/86 build Brumby, and going over it to get it prepped for the road. After crawling underneath it, I noticed it doesnt have a cat.....
From what I have researched, it looks like 1986 was when cats were required....so my question is should I have them or not on this?...was this built before the transition to cats or has it been removed, and if so, I guess I will need to need to replace it for a RWC?

It should have a cat. Subaru had them before they were a legal requirement in Oz.

You might be able to use an L series Y pipe. If you have the little block spacers immediately off the head for the EGR gear the exhaust will hang lower which usually isn’t an issue.

All the best sorting this out.
