Just to be correct on this, you are saying these catalytic converters are 'DIRECT' fit units right? If so, can you point us to a website or two so we can look at the cat converters themselves?

The Random Tech cat unit has piping on both ends of it that allow it to be a direct fit. It is not simply a cat converter by itself.

Here's what i managed to dig up:

AFAIK yes. The one from thepartsbin.com and ebay definitely are. I dunno about the other one. Seems like it.

The Magnaflow Ebay cat converter looks like a good deal. Problem is, there's no indication that an O2 sensor is in it. Maybe I overlooked it.

The Magnaflow on Ebay page states you need to go to the Magnaflow site to see the 'real' picture of the cat converer. The part# of the Magnaflow cat is #23865.
So I did..........
http://www.car-sound.com/catalog/dir...spx?PartID=658

The Magnaflow site states it's only for the 1994, 1995 and 1996 1.8ltr Impreza 4 cylinder. It also says it's a rear converter, not the front one which contains the O2 sensor.

ThePartsBin site has the same rear cat converter as well, not the front one. It is for the 1.8ltr Impreza as well, so no O2 sensor.

The ecatalyticconverter is for the front but it doesn't show an O2 sensor. Also, it states it is for the 1.8ltr.

well, that settles that now doesn't it? I'm just going to get a universal hi-flow cat and have a custom cat section made. Seems to be the less expensive way to go.

'Cobb' and 'Cheap' are oxymorons. Antonyms if you will.
