Re: Dont hate me for asking

yea man ebay is pretty reliable ppl dont trust it but theres plenty of good quality things on there, just make sure you heard of the brand before. and there was a recent direct bolton greddy test pipe bidding starting at 15 bucks but bidded up to 100$ it seems like your pretty serious about what you wanna get but id just type it in word for word on ebay bro just use paypal and you will be straight

Re: Dont hate me for asking

Thanks guys, Its a nice change to ask a question and not get any, " why would you do that, thats so stupid or you should do this instead responses. This is the Forum I signed up for. Appreciate the input. Never even thought of ebay lol. Ive bought some stuff off there before and have been happy.

Re: Dont hate me for asking

I have plans on getting a WS2 (just can't get the N1) which is way to quiet for my tastes so I have researched into what kind of headers and hi-flo cats I want to get to make it a little louder.

The best made is Magnaflow. You can either go onto their site The Official Site of MagnaFlow Exhaust Products - Exhaust Systems For Trucks, Suv's, American Muscle, Diesel, & Sport Compact Vehicles and check them out, or go onto eBay and type in "prelude magnaflow" and it will bring up a bunch. The hi-flo cats are a lot more expensive than the regular ones, BUT they are worth it IMOP. You will spend between $200-230 for a nice Magnaflow hi-flo catalytic converter.

Re: Dont hate me for asking

Magnaflow Exhaust Solutions-Hottexhaust.com

they always have deals as good as ebay and I've bought from them more than once... and they have a canadian office

are you welding it in? if so just get a universal that is OBDII compliant... you can still get high-flow.

direct fit...96-01...OBDII...unfortunately this one doesn't have the proper pic: http://www.hottexhaust.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=22644

damn, just realized some of the metal substrate universals are OBDII compliant now... check it!

Re: Dont hate me for asking

So, let me make sure I am understanding you guys. The Magnaflow #22644 like shown in the link is obviously an OBD II compliant Converter. Does this mean that it will not throw a code on a 5th Gen Lude? I know I keep reading that the OEM Converter is more efficent than the aftermakets people replace them with and they are getting the Check Engine Light because of it. I want a new aftermarket converter that wil not give me a CEL and wont require me modding it with a simulator or the 'ol Non-Fouler trick. Does this Magnaflow fit my needs?

Re: Dont hate me for asking

^ I don't know if the magnaflows in the link I sent would throw a code... luckily I have no experience in that, lol :)... I would hope you wouldn't get a code since they are compliant, but I guess they could... high flow should be more efficient though... good luck with it.
