Mine only had 4 cats, 2 actual cats and 2 pre-cats further up the mid-pipe. But mine is a 99 I don't know if the sn95's were different. I'll assume they were.

i have a 99 and i had 6 as well. I think as far as new edges go, they have 6 if its a cali emissions car, but others have 4. As far as the 96-98s go i guess they all have 6 but not sure.

Wow thought someone would have answered this correctly by now, especially senior members.

4 Cats just like on mine, the two others are not cats they are resonators.
and two cats for each 4 cylinders are for emissions
