so is Random tech the only high flow cat that will fit the Si? are there any other companies with a high flow cat that will hook up to the stock exhaust??
from what i unerstand, stock replacement from factory = $700+. whereas $375 for bolt-on is very good. definately look into vibrant or co what someone else did, bcrh + magnaflow weld on. its somewhere on here. 2cbaz938 said:cool thanx guys.....i jus think for a cat 300+ is kinda pricey but it is bolt on so....
+1 I used the R/T cat with comptech header for about 3-4k miles with no defouler and no cell. I've currently been using the BCRH with no cat with angled defouler for about 3k miles and no cell. Otherwise, ya R/T cat or AJP (modified R/T cat) are bolt on and fit very well. The magnaflow hi flow cats you're gonna have to weld in.Skin441 said:bolt on and go- random
weld in- magnaflow
Fit and finish wise the R/T cat is nice. AJP is pretty pricey too. It just all depends how deep your pockets are.
I'm running random cat.
Anyway you go, get the spark plug defouler, you may not need it but atleast if you do you wont have to get back under there to install it.
Yes the Random Tech cat is 300 cell, and it will flow more exhaust than the stock unit. By itself you could expect gains of about 7-8 hp and then gains of about 15 hp with the exhaust.Englishe30 said:I also would like to just run a hi-flow cat and then maybe an aftermarket exhaust system. Are there any gains when putting on just the hi-flow cat...
Cookstar said:I've got the Random cat and have been satisfied with it so far. I've had no CELs or other issues. It adds to the exhaust sound and, IMO, is nearly perfect when combined with my Greddy Evo 2. However, that Vibrant header with cat is tempting...
How bout torque?Excelerate said:Yes the Random Tech cat is 300 cell, and it will flow more exhaust than the stock unit. By itself you could expect gains of about 7-8 hp and then gains of about 15 hp with the exhaust.
PM me if you need a RT cat.

Would it make a difference or is it not even worth it?
