exactly what I thought...

High Quality With Chrome Finish surface

Increase 5-10 Horse Power, Straight Thru Design Direct Bolt On

Easy to install

Spec and Features:

Increase air flow and performance
2.25" inlet, 2.5" outlet
100% Stainless steel with chrome finish
Bolt-on design, easy installation
This Cat is for race and performance, off road only.
Just what I thought, I just didn't read much of anything, thats a straight thru pipe...a cat converter replacement. (illegal...)

If you have emissions testing don't get this.

2.25" inlet...I'm not sure what size inlet the EGT exhaust is but you'd either have to get one custom made or find a fitting to make it work.

a) those aren't catalytic converters, numbnutz.. how many people have to tell you that? They're pipes made to look like high flow cats.. but they don't even look the part.

b) you don't need backpressure..

What size piping did they put on? Is it mandrel bent? Do you still have a flex-pipe?

yes..... but the cats you were looking at weren't cats.... just straight through pipes that look like cats.

Get what sound back? Adding restriction will make it quieter.

The high-flow cats that you posted are not cats nor do they even LOOK like cats. The one that thescortgt posted is what you want. If you want to pass inspection legally, that is.

unless yyou are into real horsies(doubt it) getting your cat out for that will not do any good....i got pulled over a couple of time.....anyway for cat converters go for magnaflow or catco.......its the only legal way.....and it won't sound like a weed whacker on crack and steroids....

Your car is not stalling because of the exhaust system. You could take your exhaust system off and it would idle fine. Your car sounds like rice because it's a LITTLE FOUR-CYLINDER. Leave your exhaust how it is, or get a REAL catalytic converter. You might also want to look into why it's stalling out, as it is not due to your exhaust system.

I will be waiting for a response telling me I'm wrong. Because I'm not.

actually, i have a friend with a 94 tracer lts, and his car stalls, because it doesn't have any backpressure. it doesn't idle fine at all, he has to keep the engine revved. there's a large hole in his exhaust right before the cat, and he doesn't have the money to replace the whole exhaust. but he can't even stop at stopsigns without stalling. he has to roll through them.
