    For some reason I could not access the pictures. It could be my computer, but if others have the same problem you might want to do a search on how to post pictures on the forum. The other problem could be the limited posts you have. I think you have to have at least ten to post pictures. Responding to this and one other post should grant you the privilege.

    I viewed the pic but it looks to be way too big for here. Might try making it smaller.

    I have Chromium (Linux version of Chrome), so I was able to view the pictures by right clicking and choosing "Open Image in New Tab."

    Those are all mufflers.

    As an aside, it might be a good idea to spell out all words. Not to be a jerk but someone may be using the search feature for "catalytic converters" and miss this post.

    Or, somebody may be searching for "Cats". It's common enough. Does anybody use the search tags options? There, you could put in cat, cats, and catalytic converts. I may be the only one who uses them, though....

    I can't see the images in Chrome or Firefox here, though. I don't have Chromium on my Linux laptop. I can tell you that if they meow, they're likely cats

    LLcoryJ, I'm sorry to say, but based of off the pictures they appear to be mufflers just like billygoat said. Like I said I'm pretty sure they aren't cats but to make sure, look through it and see if you just see dark. If you see dark, most always it a muffler (could be a really clogged cat) but if you look through it and see light through a honey comb type shape, that's a cat. And also usually mufflers are welded together on the outsides and form a "square" and then most cats have the welds on flats on the sides that extend about 1/2 to 3/4 inches and run long ways instead of just around the port sides. Unless its an old diesel truck cat, that's where the light check is a good place to start

    For some reason, Opera on Linux shows me the links. Those look like mufflers to me, also....
