I have a 94006 Magnaflow Carsound high flow cat. Was pretty cheap at around $60 I think but I havent installed it so I cant tell you what they are like in terms of performance. Does anybody know how big of a difference there is in everything from the design and performance compared to a regular OEM cat?

Measure your exhaust. SE'* typically have 2.25", but measure to be sure. Either of those brands will do. I have Magnaflow. SSE/SSEi exhaust is 2.5".

2.5" 94006 - $45 (waiting to be installed)

I had the 2.25" magnaflow on my old car and it gave it quite the increase.

TJ: that seller has 6668 responses. 97.5% is positive. Do you know how good that is? He accepts PayPal, which has a buyer protection plan, so if you pay using PayPal, you are cool. I would be the upmost confident purchasing from that seller.

To my knowledge, I have a Carsound. I get an SES light occationally with it, but according to scans, it is functioning properly.

the guy has a high rating... but it appears that he wont communicate with the buyer.... and by my standards i dont by from anybody with less than a 98%.

Oh man, Source forge!! yay!

I remember that project when it first came out.. lost track of it after that.. good times, good times! And it'* cross platform Justin likes that.

EDIT: For all the Gentoo users out there [holla at cha boy!], you can emerge it.. I am lazy, so I usually just go that route. Just thought i'd share that.

Say my cat is 2.5'' and the piping on the car is 2'', would it be bad to install this? Im thinking no because it will only get bigger in that part of the whole setup and Im guessing it might even be better.
