Cat install

Post by macsveen » Sun Nov 26, 2017 2:46 am

I'm looking for feedback on exhaust install.

I have a direct fit Magnaflow CARB cat 2.50 going into a 2.25 Super 44.

Which way do I install the cat? It has a bend to it. I can point it towards the driveshaft or towards the passenger side.

I really don’t know the answers here but I will tell you that we are all picture freaks around here and pictures will help those with the answer see what you are talking about and describe the solution the esiest.

On many exhausts and I would assume some cats there is an arrow for direction of flow or an in and out designation..... do you see anything like that.

Post up a picture or the actual part number, would make it a lot easier to answer your question.

Usually they have an arrow or flow direction if it matters. If it's just a usual cat design, not sure it matters. Maybe call or email Magnaflow.

Are you going to use the original cat back exhaust? Everything from the cat to the rear end.
