RRC LWB Y-Pipe

Need a Y-pipe for my 1995 RRC LWB. Prefer good used. New seems to be $500+. Passenger side cat is currently rattling around. Don't want to wait until it clogs.

Barring that, anyone know any shops in the Northern VA area that will cut and weld new cats in?

You can also cut and lengthen a SWB pipe.

Does the '95 have 4 O2 sensors or just 2?

Robbie, as you know around here work like this is pricey. If you want a hand welding one in, I can help. I did one of these on my truck once and it was a good fit.

Can't beat an offer like Galpin's but just in case, there is a Meineke shop on 606 in Herndon I found to be very reasonable. This was about two years ago but the tall black guy was very cool. Thinks outside the franchise box and went the extra mile I needed him to when I was redoing my exhaust on a 90.

You friggin' NOVA trucks have to get the sniffer test, right?

Robbie, I have my old LWB y-pipe...let's just say it is a free flowing style.But the flange is cut off and you wouldnt pass emissions I'm guessing.

I'd get some aftermarket cats like above..... remove y-pipe from truck, make up a jig, cut off both old ones and weld in 2 new cats.


Marc Olivares also did a good tech write-up.

Yeah, emissions here.

Charles - may hit you up with the offer. I have never even touched a welder, so I do not have the ability to do something like that myself. I will check with that Meineke shop first though and see what kind of cost they quote. If it is reasonable, may just go that route.

Thanks guys.

so it passed emissions and rattling has actually quieted down. not sure if that means it's clogged up in there or if it passed its stones. Now to decide what to do. Joel's work makes me want to wrap it in saran wrap and store it away until I finally have the time, room and money to bring it half way up to his level.

I'm doing battle with rattling cats right now, when they quiet down that means all the pieces are stuck in your muffler or wedged in the second half of the cat. from experience, it can be hard to detect a partially clogged cat. But they can cause a lean condition and valve damage over time. Clean em out or change them for new. Your initial instinct was the right one. FY my truck passed emissions with partially clogged cats. No great challenge there. Emissions test is a pretty low bar to overcome.

Measure the temps of both CATs. The bad one will be extra toasty even when both banks on the 3.9 are running smoothly. Ask me how I know.

Glad I'm not the only one feeling that way. Thought I was happy just waking my RRC SWB from her 10-year slumber, but following Joel's build thread has me rethinking my timeline for my Concours project. Thankfully, JLR just announce the creation of the LR Heritage parts division and they're starting with OEM part support for RRCs first. OC, it's still LR pricing, but hey, I'm just glad there's going to be factory support for our 'Heritage' rigs.

I had cats that were thoroughly clogged and did not show significant temp difference. Bottom line is that they were rattling already which means the catalyst is in little pieces that are working their way downstream. Even a minor clog can cause performance issues that are gradual to the extent that you don't notice them. Fix the problem now or risk paying for it later with a damaged engine.

The PO sold my D with the #3 and #7 wires crossed. They thought the #7 injector was gummed up. Needless, it was dumping raw fuel down the left bank for who knows how long. Corrected the wires, passed emissions, all good. Then the left CAT failed a few months later with the rocks in the coffee can and down on power. Thinking it ran 75F hotter at the intake than the good side. Posted the numbers here in ~11'. The y-pipe is on huff's rig. Thinking he spliced in a new Magnaflow on the bad side.

Emissions is So hit and miss with RRCs . With that said, I remember having to hollow out my cats to get enough power to move the truck again. I have a stock LWB setup from a 93 that is Available. Let me know if you need it. I have a welded up down pipe set with no cats too if that is something that you wanted also. It was off a SWB but i I don't know if the stretch is after the cats or not.
