If you have a flange ( 3 bolt) where extractors join the system, make a blank flange of the same external shape & size out of 3mm plate, drill 10 or so 5mm holes in it ( Where the internal Dia of the pipe was/is) Seperate the join and insert the plate with a flange gasket on each side & bingo!... Don't give the car too much though, until it's removed, as the back pressure created is NOT good!... Had these plates for years for EPA on my XRGT!.. It works! Trouble with chicken wire is it will burn away unless your pretty quick getting to , & in and out of the EPA!
