Subject: 5.2 cat convertor and exhaust
IP: Logged

Message:
Hi all

Sorry if this is an often repeated topic. I've been searching the list, but wondered if it might be easier just to ask what I'm looking for.

I've got a '98 2wd with stock 5.2 and I think the 3rd cat is breaking up. I'm was going to install a cat back dual exhaust soon anyways, so now I'm also looking for convertor options.

Opinions...is there any point in going with a high flow cat, or should I just stick to a OEM replacement?

What high flow convertors are available?
Can anyone provide brands and part numbers?

I checked the Carsound and Magnaflow sites quickly, but not sure what part number I would need for either stock replacement or high-flow.

Thanks in advance.

If you have under 80,000 mi on your odo, it is a warranty replacement. So OEM is free. High flow will help if you have installed high flow muffler. High flow cats cost $75-150.

I'm in Canada, so I don't think I have the 80,000 mile coverage. I think it's only 80,000 km here (50,000 mi).

The dual outlet cat back should be less restrictive that the stock pipe. Any preferences for high flow convertor brands?
