Just for the proper function of the unit, it might be a little too far downstream at that location. Additionally, you may want to keep the res to quiet the headers, then later on have the option to delete or upgrade to a Magnaflow.

For my daughters Zetec, I added the 4-1 headers and placed a new 'bullet' cat right after the headers. Kept the stock res which I plan to replace with a Magnaflow or similar in the next week or two.

Must be that jumbly-wumbly thing happening again.

#1213185 (Re: LittleFishie) 04/11/06 02:03 PM

SOrry for the newbie post, please don't flame me! I am looking for an exhaust system for my 96. I recent purchased a Tsudo header from eBay. It is a long-tube 4-1 type, with O2 senson bung. Unfortunately, my current O2 sensor seems to attach to the cat (it looks like it). I am going to purchase a high-flow cat that I wish to place just aft of the header collector.
1) Do you recommend any particular high flow cat (brand, size, flanges (two or three bolt))?
2) I wish to replace the center resonator with a straight pine. Can the stock muffler handle the extra flow?
As for install, I sure hope that DanG is up for a project!

Many thanks,
Shamun

2 1/4" pipe from flex back with 5x8 Magnaflow muffler in Resonator location. Exhaust was painted black with a 2.5" slash cut chrome tip at the end. Quiet as stock w/ res cut out but gets louder as your right foot goes down. Nice and mellow sound cruising.
