the injector pump is similar to a bosh k tronic system found on the 924 porshe the cat is part of the exhaust system it is a type of filter that reduces the greenhouse gasses produced by fossil fuel systems ergo petrol and diesel there is a platinum mesh amongst other filters if this breaks down it will effect the whole engine would have your main agent check the cat and the lambada sensor before you go to the expence of replacing the fuel injector pump there is a good stockest on ebay that ships world wide for replacement exhaust parts rather than paying main dealer prices and if you contact mjm4x4 on ebay they might have a pump at 1/2 the main dealer price hope this helps you out a lot regards john
