Question Centre decat pipe doesnt appear to fit ? 99 classic

hi all...

I recently purchased brand new decat centre pipe ( HAYWARD & SCOTT ) only to find it doesnt fit, seems too long when i got under car and sized it up ! the part numbers are XSS05/0 CPA-S05 F12H05M2 but... when i was under i noticed the cat is only a small roughly 1ft length part, can this be removed and a straight short pipe added, any ideas where to buy such a part ? or is this not infact the cat and something completly different.

You have a de resonated centre section,
You can buy a small decat pipe to remove the 2nd cat as you say but you will still have a cat in your standard downpipe.

not sure if thats good or bad i can live with one cat in the downpipe i guess how or where could i get a small decat pipe to remove the 2nd cat? any idea on costs, and would that be as simple as removing the part i see when i look under the car thats about a ft long,
thanks

a decat pipe is easy and cheap to change, does the H&S centre not take the cat and your centre section out or is the new exhaust a totally different length to any of your old exhaust,
Most exhausts swap and fit what car do you own?

the new centre pipe is the wrong length its too long ! looking underneath all i need is a piece about 1 ft in length to replace the car which looks like its a one piece removal ?? but where do i get one from ?

If you replaced the centre section and cat on your car would the new pipe be long enough or is the new pipe the same length as your old centre section ?

This should explain how your exhaust is made up,
They part you have is centre section and is the long part in the pic, as you have said the decat is a small pipe after the downpipe but before the centre section(this is where a cat back exhaust starts)
hope that helps a little
