I ordered a magnaflow high flow cat and picked up some lukey extractors for cheap. Can anyone tell me the parts i would need to connect the two, as it is clearly not bolt-on.

Do i need extra 2.5" pipe to connect them. Can someone tell me there experience as i have no idea

Thanks. :D

Depends what size the catalytic converter and what model Lukey extractors. I would assume the extractors have a 2.5" flanged outlet while the cat has a 2.5" inlet/outlet diameter. So you'll need 2.5" piping with matching flanges. One flange to match the extractors while the other flange to match the exhaust system. If you still have the stock exhaust system, I suggest you weld a 2.5" flange (similar to the extractors one) to both ends of the converter and change the flange on the stock exhaust, this makes it easier for you to upgrade the rest of the exhaust later on.

In saying all of the above, if you don't know how to weld or have the equipment to do so, and you don't want to ruin the goods you just purchased, it is cheaper, easier and faster for you to give it to an exhaust specialist who has all the necessary piping, flanges and tools to do the job.

I think it cost me about $100 for them to install my extractors, weld in the pipe work on the cat and fitted it all up while at the same time re-aligning the whole system to make sure it sits correctly.

Thanks, that cleared it up. If it was bolt on id definitely do it myself, but im not to confident with welding. I have a lukey catback aswell so the whole system will be 2.5".
