Feeling Blue...

Driving on the interstate today and the "Y" pipe suddenly broke on my '96
disco, V8, NAS above the cats at the manifold.

$866.00 US for a NRP replacement part w/o shipping. No labor.

WTF?

I'll never understand this. Unless it includes the cats, that's overpriced
by about 8x.

It does, hence the price. Landrover UK list the same part at around
700-950, depending on exact model!!

Mine went there, and the replacement was about 700, including the
cats.

The price I posted before does include both cats but no lambda (O2) sensors.
Prior to the break I was getting an ECU trouble code. Bad rear 02 sensors/
bad cats. The US$866.00 NRP stainless steel exhaust is considered an upgrade
with a higher flow exhaust. NRP from http://www.roversnorth.com is the only
company suggesting an increase in horsepower.
LR Genuine is US$1825.00 just for the part. After market stainless is
US$654.50 from http://www.get-rhino.com , again cats included. Lastly,
http://www.roverparts.com has a SS set for US$699.95.

I'm considering the NRP "upgrade" with a new 4 set of Bosch O2 sensors.
Looks like ~ US$1500.00 if I do my own labor.
