Default B10 Biturbo needs cat

The catalytic converter is gone on my Biturbo. Even if the factory still had inventory they'd be something like $9,000, so are there any other recommended solutions?

Thanks for finding that out. I'd been led to believe it wasn't even available anymore.

Possibly a collector car faux pas, but what about something more generic? Have a custom system made so you can get through emissions and then keep the stock system and gut the cat just for collector completeness.

Has the cat collapsed causing the car to run like crap or are you just failing emissions testing?

That's exactly what I would do ----^ custom mid pipe with a good third party cat (Magnaflow, Vibrant, etc). Nothing special about the Alpina part in this case.

We don't have emissions testing in my parts. Just looking to be a little enviro-friendly.
