Literally this happened about 6 weeks here in FNQ.  My customer owns a V6 Hilux.  Finishes his days work at the Uni, comes out to the car, dumps his bag on the passenger seat, starts the ol girl up (V6 Quad Cam 4L) and nearly shits himself because of the noise.

Turns the engine off, has a look underneath and CATs gone from the Manifolds back to the Y piece where it crosses behind the GBox. :angryfire:
