Smile Random cat for Impreza 2.5RS!

I just got a reply to my email from Random about a cat specifically for the Impreza 2.5RS:

"We just added the Impreza 2.5RS converter and don't have it on our web site yet. The part number is 822504, it has 2-1/2" diameter inlet and outlet and it replaces both of the stock converters and has the necessary oxygen sensor fittings. It sells for $317. We should have a photo up on our web site next week."

So things look promising. I already emailed them asking about whether this comes with some sort of connector pipe to run from the cat outlet to the intermediate pipe.

$317!!! Hahahaha. Try www.jegs.com $50 plus another $50-100 to have it welded by any muffler shop.

Does it pass California emmissions?

Not sure yet on whether it passes CA emissions. I'll ask...

However, I did get another response:

"Our high flow converter is a direct fit, bolt-in replacement. Unbolt the
stock unit, bolt ours in its place and you're done."

So, no welds or custom-made pipes or anything. 2.5" inlet and outlet, and the thing fits in the stock location. I'm thinking Borla headers to Random cat to Stromung intermediate pipe!

(few things you might want to check before you get this)
is that going to replace the front or rear cat? if so , what are you going to do with the other one? also, does it have something for the O2 sensors?

BTW, did you ever get a diagnosis of your cat problem (without hitting the cat )

DigDug, there is certainly some value in a true "bolt-on" part. I'm just suggesting you shouldn't overestimate that value. Exhaust work is easy and cheap to have done--so why pay a couple hundred extra dollars for something you can have custom fit to your car for less.

Given that many exhaust parts don't fit together perfectly, you're going to want somebody who can bend, weld and has a lift to do the install anyway.

This Random cat replaces both cats, not just the primary or secondary. It has fittings for both O2 sensors.

Most muffler shops won't touch your cars cats (unless they are damaged) if you have under 50,000 miles on the car as there are federal regulations on emissions equipment.

So this might be the only way for some to get hi-flow cats.
