Hey, I'm in need of a new pair of cats for my EL V8, and I don't want standard ones, because I do want to be making some decent numbers out of it down the track. What are people's opinions on what I should get? I don't want to pay huge dollars either, is there a decent compromise?

The quality of the magnaflow cats of recent has been woeful, a few people have used them in the last few months where they have separated internally. not just a one off either.

Because thats highly illegal, attracts a 15k fine or jail time. its one of the worst things you can get done for on the road.

the EPA in nsw frequently gets people to the full extent of the maximum fineable extent. Courts in NSW love raping individuals for this stuff.

because it stinks, it creates turbulence in the hollow casing giving no gain, and its illegal.
