Talk to me about Cats
No, not the furry kind. The kind that get my car to pass state inspection. Here in NC it is just a visual but I'd rather just put them on and leave them so I'm shopping for a set of 2.5" universal cats. Some of the ones on Jegs and Summit say non-OBDII compliant. I'm not sure what that really means or if it even matters since I plan on planning on putting the MIL elims on there anyway.

What midpipe do you have now? It might be easier to just swap out the entire midpipe for a catted one.

Jeffk 12-19-2013 09:45 AM

Right now it's Bassani mid-lengths with an off-road X. It's not an easy part to find without paying out the nose.

So I can get 2 universal cats from Summit or Jegs for like $120 and have them welded in pretty cheap.

be cheaper and easier to but a catted mid length midpipe probably.

Why not just put the stock midpipe on?

Jeffk 12-19-2013 03:17 PM

The Bassani one is like $450. I guess I'll see if I can find one on one of the forums for sale cheaper than that.

I don't have one since I bought the car and these headers are just a little longer than shortys so even if I had one it wouldn't fit.

Yes, I screwed myself buying this car without having him get it inspected first.

Hes got mid length headers which are longer than stock but shorter than LTs

Screw it. I'm going to find stock manifolds and mid pipe so I don't have to stress over this anymore.

uberstang1 12-19-2013 08:00 PM

Whats there to stress just get a catted bassani mid pip and be done
