Stainless Exhaust "J" Pipe (Collector to Catalytic Converter)
We are very proud to offer our 100% USA-made stainless steel exhaust components for Vanagon. Quality, affordability, and longevity with a lifetime warranty.
This J-pipe, sometimes called an "elbow pipe," fits between the collector and the catalytic converter on 2.1 liter Vanagons. We re-positioned the pre-catalytic conveter "sniffer" port so it does not point straight downâ€”one less thing to snag when driving off-road! That port has also been updated to eliminate the impossible-to-get "sniffer cap." Innovation all around!
Direct fit for all 1986-91 2WD and 4WD. That's rightâ€”we designed this part to fit both 2WD and Syncro. In addition, we kept the flange positions in the same, exact factory locations. So this part is interchangable with the corresponding, original VW exhaust component. This allows you to replace your aging exhaust system with these stainless steel parts piece by piece, or all at once with our complete exhaust kit.
Materials note: This GoWesty stainless steel exhaust system will not stay shiny and aesthetically perfectâ€”but it will last, and we value longevity over aesthetics. For the complete story on stainless steel metallurgy, please click here.
Limited Lifetime Warranty: Every stainless exhaust part we offer comes with a limited lifetime warranty. The part is warranted against structural failure for life (for the original purchaser).
