your link is just jegs homepage.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

My T-bird is like George Jetson's wife, you try to give her a little money, she takes the whole wallet.

If I had get cats I would get these thunderbolt spun metallic substrate cats.

http://performance-curve.com/thunder...-metallic.aspx

However.... I'd rather go with "Off road" down tubes, or if visual inspection is a concern I'd go with frozen boost "non catalytic converters"

http://www.frozenboost.com/index.php...7ec02523e1d6a8

Just what I would do, since I've seen many conventional/stock cats fail under super high performance applications. However I'm sure I'd find it difficult (not impossible) to get someone to weld a frozen boost non catalytic converter on a vehicle lol, but money makes the world go round. I've found people in just about any state working at independent exhaust shops willing to make a quick extra $100 to gut, cut, hollow, or replace with straight pipe, all sorts of catalytic converters.

IIRC it's what Mandrel Exhaust Systems uses in their prefab setup; no complaints with them on my car so far.

I've said this before, but those Magnaflow "high flow" cats are just good replacement cats. We sell them at our shop as regular replacements. There is no performance gain from installing them unless you have one of those old POS big oval GM converters from the 80s-90s, or if your converter is actually clogged. I have heard that the spun converters flow better, but I KNOW that they fit tight places better

Hey DLF, where did you get your exhaust work done? I have kooks, but didn't really know where to go from there. Did you buy the down pipes and cats together or did you put it together yourself? It looks damn good!
