    2 silencers...and the whole exhaust is one piece, so technically the tailpipes are on the exhaust manifold if that were the case.
    the cats are part of the exhaust just forward of the centre silencer.
    part numbered 1 here

    edit...have conflicting info about the cats being on the manifold tbh.
    real oem says no for our model, so we'll go with that
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    The difference is between Left Hand Drive models & Right Hand Drive... if you've put a RHD model into Real OEM & the cats's aren't on the manifold, they are on the LHD models!
