yep. Technically I come in on Nov 13 for a few hours to finish paperwork, and Nov 14th is the office party, turn in ID's etc.. But for all practical purposed 7 minutes from now Ö .

BTW Telford - you have no idea how much you have helped me and others here. Without your expertise this forum would not have accomplished as much as it has. There is no other car forum where the people get as much support from so many members as this forum. So many people have helped me too. Small things - I once had two small odd plastic pieces left over after a door rebuild - several folks recognized them as part of the vent window assembly.

A bit late to the game, but here are some photos of the test blank that Magnaflow sent to Steve fitted onto my '81 Vanagon.

You can see that there isn't a great deal of wiggle room between the cat and the crossover and the cat and the rear apron. Hopefully the diameter of the final product won't be any larger than the test blank.

A couple of shots of the O2 sensor mounting. I had requested that the sensor location be clocked a couple of degrees counter-clockwise, as it's pretty tight there.

And, oh yeah: that rusty crossover pipe? Believe it or not, I had it ceramic coated just after picking it up at CIP's warehouse in Delta BC way back when. The rusty spots started showing up just a couple of months after I mounted it. So much for space-age coatings... Rolling Eyes

I believe you BusDepot. Maybe they made mine and shipped it to me so I would stop asking about it. Will be mounting it soon and will go smog it and send the results to them. I should have the time after Nov 1 when I retire.

Not yet available from Magnaflow according to Planet Magnaflow. Apparently they have no date when it will be in production.

it's unlike you to make a mistake. See that as a friendly comment and NOT sarcastic.

Yeah, it looks generic CAD-flavored crap... and I just read that this P/N has a note that ď Catalytic Converter Universal; 2 Inch; California Pre-OBDII; OE Specifications; Cutting And Welding Required During Installation; C.A.R.B. Executive Order Number: D-193-132 ď

Part No. 3391004

So... I goofed! Thatís still not the right one! We will have to wait a little more. I misread the updated Part Number. My apologies!


what are you referring to Steve? The cat they made which started this thread fits anything that bolts on with a 3 bolt flange and has the tube that the muffler slides into using the special donut clamp. Technically it would fit a catalytic Beetle BUT it is listed for TRUCKS which is how we are able to use it. Lyle and I test fitted several generations the prototype shells to both my bus and his Vanagon before we were satisfied with the fit. This will not work on the double flanged 1979 and later California bus and air cooled Vanagon. Those models can still be found elsewhere also, and aftermarket weld on solutions are available. This catalytic fits 95% of the buses that need a CARB II cat to smog.

The one in the O'Reily ad is a generic cat that does not have the offset needed. This is what the new on will look like when bolted on. The photos are of the prototype shell bolted in - I haven't had time to install the fully functional one. It is on my to-do list, probably when I replace the heads after retiring Nov 1.

SGKent wrote:
Magnaflow cat shell mounted in 1977 bay to see how it fits. I would think this should fit any 1976 - 1978 all; and 1979 - 1982 Federal air cooled. It is a little tighter fit OD but it does fit and bus owners can pass smog with it - then that is what is needed. I would speculate that the larger core will lower emissions, and reduce back pressure a little, letting the engine run cooler.
