The BA ones look like they flow really well, they are at least 2 1/2". Aftermarket are good also but they cost a lot and probably don't flow all that much more than the BA ones, and most 5L engines even with a few mods don't need huge flow, just somethig better than the E-series ones.

Genuine Ford prices for a cat converter are ridiculous! Aftermarket 2" to 3" hi flow cat converters are less than $200 now!
Unless your talking second hand BA ones, but then it's second hand, used, and cat converters don't have such a long life.
