hey i found this. T1R Racing Converter - Honda Civic Si 06+ FG2 / FA5: Evasive Motorsports | PH: 626.336.3400 Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm PST
is that all i would need? and is that 70mm piping? thanks for all your guys help :)
I have this test pipe and I have had some problems with it, here's the thread (http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/exhaust-discussion/181608-t1r-test-pipe-owners-come-itt.html) I have since had the pipe re-welded to fix the leak and it has held up fine so far.

Also the removal of the cat on our cars has not shown any real gains from the dynos that i've seen, there are a few threads on here about it, search for them and im sure youll find them. The test pipe does make the car a lot louder though, and of course you get the full exhaust smell which can be annoying at times.

I don't really like Taiwan Racing products to be honest, they sell the stuff at premium price and the qualities is not worth the moneys in my opinion.

The T1R is built nice, don't get me wrong...but imo after seeing the welds break on mine and them wanting me to pay the shipping to get it fixed, i'd say they are not worth the price.

There's another member here and that has his T1R test pipe flange came off, and he had a muffler shop weld it back for him.

They do have good products but just not worth the price like you said.

I am seriously starting to think that my catalytic converter hates me. I have been trying to put my header on for the last two days and have made no progress with the three bolts that connect it to my tsudo 70mm. Is it possible that the exhaust shop that installed the tsudo cross threaded two out of the three nuts, because one comes out incredibly easy, and the other two just move slightly right and left. I am getting rather annoyed with these two bolts, if I cant get them off tomorrow I think I will be forced to have an exhaust shop cut them off.
