So I’ve read most of the cat/exhaust threads I can and am a little confused.

I’m after a new cat. My exhaust was rattling all the time so I put it up on the hoist and its the cat. Sounds like the insides have fallen apart.

So in reading what I can, it sounds like there are very differing opinions on whether to go standard or high flow. I currently have extractors and a 2.5” system so thought high flow might be the way to go. (It’s for my BA Ghia which is on LPG)

Is there a particular brand that is recommended?

Are any of the ones on eBay any good? They seem priced well.

Is there any benefit in S/S or different core types?

What is CPSI? And what CSPI is better?

Looking forward to your recommendations and advice.
Thanks for your help guys.

Get a 3" 100cpsi metal cat. Metal cat's last alot longer than a ceramic core, and the 100cpsi flows the best.

Just remember if your going from a standard cat to highflow, it makes the exhaust quite a bit louder.

That's good cos even with the extractors and 2.5" exhaust, its pretty quite. A little louder than stock.
