just wondering what people do for cat converters for extractors.
i was hoping to find a standard cat that is 2.5" or close so i could hit the wreckers, anyone have any suggestions here?
i'm really not too keen on paying $150+ for an aftermarket one, but if it comes to that, what are some of the betterer prices people have paid?
if it does come to that, i will most likely buy a 3.5" cat so i can use it with a turbo setup.

any advice for a tight C*** would be great :)

......Just Do It. It will allow unhindered flow.
When you do, you will see how much of a tight a** the cat converter is itself. Im talking about holes 1mm by 1mm. Terribly tight! :arrow:

Guessing this is for the barra conversion you just did?
Going off my experience of running a bf with gutted cat it went worse gutted than it did with a new genuine style put back on, not to mention the Smell.
So dont take the other guys advice.
