Thank you all for all the posts, PMs, and emails about wanting a cheaper Y pipe.

We worked with our good friends at Doug Thorley and asked if they could help us out with production of a cheaper Y pipe. They can mass produce exhaust parts more efficently with robotic mig welders and cheaper materials like aluminized steel instead of expensive stainless steel.

Here is the result:



We got some in today and they are ready to ship out!!!

Just click here and order it up!!!

Anything else you want??

Do you think the smog station when doing an inspection is gonna notice 2 of the 4 cats are missing? Are there o2 sensors in these cats? Considering getting one.

i would imagine you would need the stock one to pass the visual inspection for a smog. The new y pipe does have the o2 sensor bungs in it, so you just remove and replace you r sensors into the new y pipe and bolt it up.

Depends how much $$$$ you want to sneak the guy.


This would be real real easy to take on and off.

What this does is it replaces the stock Y pipe on your truck.

If you crawl under your FJ and look at the stock Y pipe, you will see that it pinches down very small as it passes under the transfer case. That part is the lowest part of the truck and the first thing to get mashed when off roading.

I wheeled with a Tacoma guy and he mashed his completely shut and the engine just did not want to run. That is when I got the idea to do the URD Y pipes to get that rock grabbing thing out of harms way and tuck it up for more protection.

The side benefit is it also removes the rear cats for better exhaust flow, better performance, and hopefully better MPG.

Nope, nope, yes, and nope.







There is a picture of a rough prototype on a Tacoma 4x4. They considered putting small mufflers in it at one time. This was not done on the production FJ version.

You will not set any codes or check engine lights when the Y pipe is installed.

On the 1GR-FE engine, the O2 sensor that monitors the health of the cats is right after the first cat and in front of the second. When you remove the second cat, the ECU has no idea it is gone. One thing made simple...

Call first.

We are short staffed for a couple of weeks. Vacations and all. I flew in from MD to man the store while Brian took a vacation.
