Y pipe options

Going to replace Y section as my cats are shot. Would like section to have cats incase I ever move to location that does serious emissions testing. Not paying LR price for genuine part. Please let me know best options and where to buy. For a 94 ST.

I put magnaflow on my 94ST last year. Ordered from Summit. No issues with ordering or delivery and self installed for the most past (I broke one of the manifold studs off and needed help with that). Performance is great...I get a water drip on startup from the flange prior to the muffler as mentioned on another thread on here.

The magnaflow is a little loud for my liking and its drony around 2100rpm. I plan to replace it as soon as other (more important) stuff stops breaking...so I'll prob have it for quite awhile.

Has anyone used this part from NAPA for their Y section?

Reviving old thread, I know there are tons of opinions that I have seen in the searches, but I am looking to replace just the Y section of my RRC and D90. Don't care about sound, replay Y only & want no rattle can noise any longer. Will be doing RRC first to see how I like it.

Would rather not pay $600+ for this new, any one used any other options for a new Y part? When you are in the generic part options for this are they all about the same?

THANKS Mark. I will probably just order the Davico and see how it works on the RRC.

I have the Y-Pipe + O2 sensors from my 110 that I would sell for $75 + whatever shipping would be. It has been sitting in attic storage for the last couple of years and was only a few years old when I pulled the 3.9. Don't know if it will work for your application and have no idea what shipping would be either. Let me know if you are interested and I will dig it out and snap a couple of pics.

Have good used Texas truck Y pipe free to good home. You would have to shorten the outlet to fit a 90. Cats good no noise. Pick up at NoVa Happy Hour or RURR.

Bill thanks for the offer. Would your LWB Y pipe work on SWB, it may have to be cut down...also does it have the O2 sensors?

Is your y pipe shot? I cut the cats out of the factory y pipe and added magnaflow.

Yes pretty much done on both vehicles. I've hit the 90's enough with a hammer. Thought about cutting them out but I think I'll just replace the Y section and be done.

No O2 sensors, but you can get the NGK ones on ebay for like $40 a set.

Most important is the flange surface on an old Y-pipe where it mates up to the manifold. If it is the least bit corroded the chance of a good seal is almost nil. I tried 2 times with the LWB including grinding those surfaces to a machinist flat spec. No good. These machines aren't fire breathing monsters so a stock or aftermarket pipe is really all you need. Drop the few hundred and be done with it. I had to pull the Y-pipe on the '99 Disco I just purchased for the daughter because of broken studs. Drilling all of them out to replace with Dorman replacements was a freaking PITA. The end results was a good tight seal though.
