Hi All just looking to buy a New Cat for my Au Falcon, My local Exhaust centre wants $330 for a high flow cat that they couldnt give me the name of and i have been looking at the ones off Ebay like the 2.5" High Flow Cat BOKKA Metal Falcon AU-BA XR6/XR8/GT
100 cpsi Euro III Emission Standard - 5 Year Warranty
or
1x Kenobi HF100 2.5" Metal-Core Catalytic Converter (100 CPSI)
Im have a set of Pacey 4480 to go on at the same time aswell as a 2.5" Cat back Exhaust System.
My main worry is are these Cats legal for NSW please or are they not.

Many thanks

hi mate.

I dont think that a metal cat is going to be very legal at all. but i could be wrong. Try one of sponsers on this site. VENOM. those fellas will set you on the right track

Do they fit straight into a falcon like the original one?

I bought two of those 2.5 in. Bokka ones for my 5.0 NF when I did the exhaust, they seem fine, I was told by another member that they looked identical to the Venom ones he had just bought at half the price of the venoms.

The original Catalytic convertors were AC Delco manufacture a division of General Motors.
I recently received advice from a Sponsor of this site who is involved with tuning and other performance goodies, he advised me to get a Magna-flow Metal one for my AU XR6 and the cheapest I have seen so far is $245.00 online and of course you will need 4 flanges to have it fitted to your car.
