You aren't in any forum violation, this is a good thread aimed at better educating.

From what I have read, done and personally seen, it appears that the standard Magnaflow high flow universals in the correct pipe sizing work fine for the Pre2000 cars. The 2000 and up cars though appear to have a much more sensative setting for the emission reduction that occurs in the cat.

In your case, I would hit up ebay/amazon for the best priced high flow universal in the correct sized pipe. I believe your piping should be 2.5", but it'* always better to measure and be safe.

I think ZZP has them for about $70 or so. I'm running one on my car and not throwing any codes.

Just a little 2 cents from a newbie here. Over in the new Hemi world we have been using the "Spark Plug Anti Foulers". You know the ones from the help section in your Auto Part stores. Pulls the O2'* out of the exhaust stream to help out with the PO420 codes or Cat efficiency. Sometimes even using 2, drilling one out and adding in Steel wool between.

Seems to help out on the Hemis and gets ya past mr Smog checks.
