Walker Direct-Fit Mufflers, Converters Now Available

WalkerCal-CatDirect-FitTenneco has introduced direct-fit replacement muffler assemblies and catalytic converters from its Walker Emissions Control brand.

Unlike conventional universal replacement components, Walker direct-fit units are engineered to provide precise, OE-style fitment without the need for fabrication, welding and other time-intensive processes, according to the company, which added these “bolt-on” repair solutions open the door for technicians and shops that have not historically provided these repairs and allow them to avoid investing in expensive pipe benders and other equipment.

“Few shop owners enjoy saying ‘No’ to customers, but many have been doing exactly that for the past several years because they felt they didn’t have the experience or equipment to compete in the emissions category,” said John Perrin, director of marketing and engineering for Tenneco’s North America Aftermarket division. “Walker direct-fit muffler assemblies and catalytic converters are engineered to enable thousands of shops to capture these service opportunities rather than sending them to their competitors.”

Tenneco has introduced more than 500 direct-fit Walker Ultra and CalCat catalytic converters and over 100 premium direct-fit Walker Quiet-Flow SS mufflers and exhaust assemblies over the past four years.
