Default Want To Buy Y Pipe, Pre Cats Are Going Bad

Ok so I think my precats are going bad because I keep getting the rotten egg smell in my car when I accelerate, but I understand there is 2 precats and I've read that the racingline y pipe will eliminate something, will it eliminate 1 of my precats? Or if I buy the y pipe do I still have to replace both precats? I'm very confused about all that as I am not to sure where exactly the precats are located.

y-pipe wont eliminate anything except your stock y-pipe

you would still need 2 precats

Actually the y-pipe will delete a cat.. A cat that's just there unreadable by the ecu.. The ones that actually delete your pre cats are headers but you might get a SES light on I don't know but the have High flow pre cats you can buy if you don't want SES

Oh ok thanks for the info. But would you have a pic of the precats and where they are exactly located? I have an idea of where they are and what they look like but I just want to make sure
