Car overheating is caused by fan not running since its OK when your moving. Fan may not be bad, mine wasnt working for a while & car would overheat whe in traffic, AC on or stopped. Had my PTM (computor) changed for another issu & fan now works. Mighrt be a simple programming issue for you.

Ill have to look into programming ...if my account is off everything is peachy...and it hasn't overheated since *knock on wood* as far as the catalytic converter ...I'm looking at pipes with them already on....I just need to figure out the best bang for my buck before I jump in

I want to try and just get everything known fixed and try to keep this car for as long as it'll last...Iv wanted a pony since I was 3 so now that I finally theoretically have one I'd like to keep him happy lol
What do you mean theoretically? Its a pony alright, dont let anyone tell you differently!

As for the Xpipe or H pipe debate, go on youtube and do a vid search and see what ya like. Of course a midpipe is best when coupled with a catback system. Also chaeck out They have alot of midpipes to choose from. I have a magnaflow catted X pipe with the borla stinger S catback myself.
