Did they steal my Cat or my Resonator?

Howdy friends,

Got into the Saabaru this morning and it sounded a bit... throatier than normal. I also noticed that the exhaust seemed to be coming from.... INSIDE THE HOUSE! I mean under the car.

Did they make off with my catalytic convertor, or my resonator?

Looks like resonator. I'm guessing the right of the picture is the rear of the car, so if that is the case, then it is just the resonator.

That's some dumb thieves, no cats that far back. But I see another resonator to the left in your picture. The two main cats are part of the downpipe, one isn't accessible from under the catrwith a sawzall.

This is going to become common with the high scrap prices.

Upon closer inspection, it was indeed the resonator.

Decided to weld on a new piece of pipe where it used to be. Had to weld in some new hangers as well, Minnesota winters are not kind to cars.

One problem fixed! Several more to go!
