lol mate they are a forum sponsor, you should check out what offers they have, might end up being cheaper than ebay, I can only assume they are good however I have never used them before

Site admin Waggin has a set for his V8...but I don't think it is running at the moment.

They look the goods though.

just make sure they have metal cores, and that the core is welded to the body so it doesnt shift

the 1st cat i got failed due to the core moving around.

i got the exhaust shop that installed the new cat to add some extra welds just in case... so it doesnt happen again!
