Definition of the word Cat-Back

If someone sold you a cat back kit for a thunderbird and only included a x-pipe and 2 mufflers would you be pissed??

There is a company on Ebay that is selling "Cat-Back" kits for mark and Tbirds,, but they do not send you the piping!?? WTF is that. The best part is they have a picture of the Full Cat-Back system installed to mislead you!!!

Its a shame as its a pretty nice kit but I dont think I can deal with someone that shaddy!

I would think that is false advertising. It should be called "partial cat-back" or "cat-back components." And while he does say at the top of the page that no piping is included, the title of the auction should say something along those lines as well.

Although now that I think about it, it should arouse suspicion because there is no cat-back that will fit 89-97 MN12s because the gas tank changed.

I always read a Ebay auction from top to bottom before bidding.

I have actually seen that Lincoln on the road. I remember the plate # because it's close to mine. Small world.

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.
