Default Performance Cat?

Ok, from what I know, there are a few recommendations on a performance cat, so I want to know about peoples' experiences with them. The 3 that seem to be really praised (as far as I can tell) are:

1. Stromung High-flow
2. Random Tech Dual hi-flow
3. Apexi Super Catalyzer

Opinions? Feedback? Anything helpful would be appreciated.

I would like to know the differences between Magnaflow and the rest since it seems like the Magnaflow products always come out way cheaper.

I have looked at a lot of hiflow converters and to be honest with you, I can't see much differance in any of them. Just by the way a converter works it will have to have some restriction. a large converter will flow better than a small converter. we have installed lots of magnaflows and they seem to work just fine.

and magnaflow is cheaper cause all it is, is a cat, no pipng so you have to get it put into a pipe at some exhaust shop unlike the others that are bolt on

It looks like the Impreza one is $701.99 +s&h. I really don't know anything about it, but I think it'd complement my N1 well. I'd love to run it catless, but emissions are strict in Weber County.

Forget that..

Get a used Random Tech, Stromung(~$200 for either), or go to an exhaust shop for a Magnaflow cat.

The APEXi is made to fit a turbo EJ20 GC/M, so it wont bolt on. I wouldn't be messing around cutting and welding a 700 dollar cat to fit my car. You can get a magnaflow for like 60 bucks, and if you mess up the install you can buy 10 more before your spending the APEXi money.
