2005 S-type 4.2L catalytic converters


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at buying an S-Type that's had a few problem, but I think I could flip it for the right price. However, the current owner has taken the catalytic converters off and there's no MOT on the car, so I need to put some on to get it to pass. I cannot for the life of me find catalytic converters for the S type 4.2L anywhere. Is there a decent priced converter anywhere for these things?

unfortunately a lot of breaker don't sell them any more, as there removed and sold on straight away, as they fetch good money scrap

you need find someone who breaking a 4.0 privately and ask for the cats

other option would be get some universal ones off ebay and get them welded in, much cheaper option



something like this would be perfect, just need to check pipe size https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-Exhaust-Catalytic-Converter-Round-400-Cell-2-51mm-Cat-Mild-steel/262581687420?epid=2135654478&hash=item3d2316947c:g:wQkAAOSwi3ta6Fk~

one of the Catalytic converters for XK8 registered 2004 has a hole in the casing and the other is heading that way. Cannot find any suppliers of original, after market or even second hand ( last resort). I am facing having to scrap an otherwise  perfectly good car. Any suggestions anybody?
