suggestion one.. stay in school fool. Or just spell check and type clearly. Just sayin'...

Magnaflow has some decent quality and decent priced options. I would start there and do your homework based on your exact needs.

Random Technology makes a cat for just that purpose. They make both a pre-made pipe for our car as well as a 2.25" cat alone.

the random tech products are very nice, but also pretty expensive based on the budgetary issues he mentioned. I doubt if he wants to make his own 'mandero' bent exhaust to save money he doesnt have.. that a nearly 500 dollar cat pipe is in his near future.

If you want to go the cheap route which I am going to try as well is they sell nice high flow cat's on ebay for about $45-$85 shipped.

outside the random tech products, the magnaflow is a pretty decent piece for 65 shipped. 2.25" in / out.

Hey Dan! I have been thinking about doing this as well. With having a better header as you do, having the 1 3/4 inch stock cat sections restrict the flow for sure. So having one or two that are 2 1/4 would take care of that problem!! Man, wish the money was there!!

Btw, got my brake upgrade done!!!

Yes but I want to run 2.5 exhaust full system so if this won't ve a back pressure issue then 2.25 it is. Remember I've gone FI so to help with flow

They make cats in 2.5... but honestly the gains from switching up from 2.25 won't be worth the $$$ you'll spend.

But what the hell am I talking about... your engine's lifespan is going to be measured in hours, spend away.

OP:

Go down to MoPac on 16th Ave. NW 3 buildings west of Centre St., on the north side.
Tell them what you need.
They will walk over to the shelf and get it.
You exchange money for goods and services.
Go find an exhaust shop to weld it together for you.
