hey i was wondering if anyone could give me a model number of a magnaflow high flow cat i could install instead of my test pipe on my SSA headers? i want it to be bolt up in the same shape as the test pipe. in other words i wanna be able to unblot the cat and bolt the test pipe up and vice versa. i have been looking at cats but i just see magnaflow cats. nothing about hiflow. can anyone point me in the right direction?

i was looking at these
http://www.car-sound.com/02product/universal/mirror.asp
model #54305

or
http://www.car-sound.com/02product/universal/race.asp
model # 14105

or will one of these work fine
http://www.car-sound.com/02product/universal/530.asp
model # 53005

anyone know what i need? and should i use a 2.25 or 2.5 cuz i know the pipe is 2.25. or atleast im pretty sure

you will need to find some flanges to weld on the cat. I had my flanges cut off my test pipe and welded on the cat.
Mine was 2.25 pipe on the cat.
I have ssa V2 headers as well.

just search ebay 2.5'' magnaflow cat. youll get what you want, but youre going to need the flanges and some pipe to make it fit. there is no "bolt up" cat available.

kteller.com sells magnaflow cays flanged to whatever length you need. I got one from them because I wanted to able to switch it back and forth and didn't want to sit at a muffler shop while it was getting done. Just something to consider.

I think they are all basically the same man. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I got a basic $65 shipped high flow version. They were out of stock, but it should be shipping direct from Magnaflow in a few days.
