These new catalytic converters feature:
• Stainless steel body—lifetime warranty against corrosion (warranty furnished by GoWesty).
• Fits 1980-91 Vanagon with OEM exhaust system except for 1980-83.5 aircooled models produced in California.
• Almost 20% larger catalyst area for those extra clean smog tests!
We offer 2 options:
• "50 State Converter" that is compliant with emissions standards in all 50 STATES. C.A.R.B. approved for use in California and Colorado. Executive order #D-193-85
• "48 State Converter" for customers outside of California & Colorado. Important note: This catalytic converter might be legal in your state, but it may not be good enough to actually pass the emissions test! If the test you have to pass includes a maximum NOx measurement, you will need to buy the 50-state catalytic converter to pass the test.
Also includes complete installation hardware kit. See list below!
• (2) 025-251-509A flat gaskets
• (1) 855-253-137A sealing donut
• (6) M8 x 35 bolts
• (3) M8 x 50 bolts
• (12) M8 flat washers
• (6) M8 copper exhaust nuts
Note on price: You are not seeing triple! This is the correct price for the 50 state catalytic converter which, in fact, has almost tripled in price. This catalytic converter is required by the California Air Resourced Board (CARB) for any Vanagon registered in California, or any state that recognizes the same rules as California (like NY, CO, WA to name a few). GoWesty DOES NOT set the price for these catalytic converters, it is dictated to us and everyone else that sells them by the manufacturer, Magnaflow. We have been told the reason for these extremely high prices are due to the cost of the materials these are made of. Until or unless the price of the raw materials suddenly plummets (unlikely), we are stuck with this price!
1980-83.5 Aircooled Vanagon: This catalytic converter will only work for Vanagons that utilize catalytic converters with two flanged ends. If your catalytic converter has only one flanged end and a straight pipe on the other end, this converter will not work for you.
1983.5-91 Watercooled Vanagon: Fits all models 2WD & 4WD
