Im guessing it means cells per square inch, the less cells the less restriction. 200 cell is what you would want to go for. If you go to something like 100 cell, i don't think they're legal for emissions.

CPSI basically means Cells Per Square Inch.
It is that honeycombed looking stuff inside a cat converter.

Basically from factory falcons come with 400CPSI cats which flow quite alright for a stock application but if upgrading people generally go for a 200CPSI cat.

Basically the less cells per square inch the better, HOWEVER 100CPSI cats can have a tinny sound and the EPA don't like them as they're pretty much unrestrictive releasing too many emissions etc etc

If you plan on putting it on a near stock falcon with exhaust and extractors a 200CPSI cat will be fine!

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :)
