    Get a "Carsound" cat. Its a real cat, its legal, it flows well, sounds good, and doesn't stink. Win all around.

    Im going to do all this myself and my welding skills arent the greatest. Kinda would rather spend the extra money for the one that bolts right up

    So pay someone to weld a cat on. Find a muffler shop to do it, then you never have to worry about it.

    I had one of those ebay cats on my old setup. It's basically a resonated test pipe that looks like a cat. The thing sounded good for a month until the welds inside of it failed, causing the glass packing to empty into my exhaust. I was literally shooting glass fibers out the back when I got on it.

    I agree with everyone else here, get the carsound cat.

    I have the magnaflow too and love it, they are cheaper on ebay but I wanted a warranty(salt in winter kills an exhaust) so I got it here. magnaflow 16747, or you can try one of the vendors

    are you just talking about the test pipe or the actual "high flow" cats they have on there?
