Has anyone ever used this product? is this truely a bolt on application? (aside from the fact that i would have to cut the stock cat off) if i have to get a new cat, i might as well upgrade some stuff while im there . i guess what im really wondering is if it will bolt up to the headers? and i have no experience with welding, so would an exhaust clamp suffice?

I looks OK and the flange looks close to the stock location but you will need to weld up the pipe after the Cat. The original pipe would need to be cut.

It looks like a good mod to get rid of the very restrictive stock expansion joint. My guess is it would be worth about 5-10 hp with the Cat.

3" might be a bit big for the NA engine but the craftsmanship of the Hogan DP is excellent. I'm running that setup now (i have the first 3" H body DP they made, and a 3" magnaflow but i didn't buy them together like that). I'll let some of the NA guys chime in on whether or not you'd be better with a 2.5" DP. I think W-bodystore.com has a 2.5 DP for the L36.

Not a bad choice at all. Would help to prevent KR when dropping pulley sizes.

I agree, that 3" will be way too much for your L36. You will likely feel a loss of low-end grunt.

I'll move your topic to Performance and Brainstorming. This section is for mechanical problems only.

Sorry, I got off track and answered Iglarum, but I do agree 3" is too big a for a lightly modded L36. Try getting a 2.5" mandrel bent DP and that would be about perfect for a L36/L27 na.
