The stock FJ62 exhaust system has a Y-pipe that connects the pair of pipes that come from the manifold. The Y-pipe crosses under the framerail. This is one disadvantage of the engine swap. One catalytic converter is less protected than the other because it is outside the framerail, and the pipe beneath the framerail is vulnerable to being crushed.
