I was looking under the car today and noticed that the Cat is supported by a brace (A) via bracket (B). I took a look at my Test Pipe .... and .... yeah .. it doesn't use the bracket support. Why? Any ideas? Seems to me that Nissan put the brace there for a reason. I know the Cats are heavier then the Test Pipes but seems to me that it wouldn't hurt.

I never even bothered to think about it when I installed my Helix pipes. They are so light compared to the stock ones that it doesn't make a difference. I'm sure Nissan installed the bracket for weight and vibration issues.
