1997 SC2
Default high flow cats

this means cats that use the litter box very frequently. j/k

anyway can i use a universal high flow converter for my exhaust system:
http://www.importperformanceparts.ne...erter_all.html

or do i have to pay like a little over 100 dollars more for a saturn-specific one:
http://www.importperformanceparts.ne...at-saturn.html

also the second url, the one for saturn specific models lists the options as:
"all models 93-95" and "SL2 96-99" does that mean i cant use the "96-99" cat on an SC2 it wont work on the coupe just the sedan...?? i figured it would be the same...

also since i wont receive the Thermal cat-back system for a week or so yet, does anyone know the pipe diamater? it doesnt say on SMS where i got it

Under the most rigorously controlled conditions, the Saturn will do as it damn well pleases.

The universal cat will require more welding to install. That's the only real difference.

Those are both really expensive for a cat, and I'm not sure if either would work. You need one with a tube coming out of it for the O2 sensor. My friend picked up a magnaflow for $90 from the local auto parts store.

I think the Thermal is 2.25", but I'm not positive.

Someone on here will tell you that you can keep the stock cat, because it is highflow, which for now you should go ahead and do. Changing it out won't make a difference.. yet. When you get your header, though, your stock cat will be the weak point in your exhaust system, because the diameter of the piping will be smaller than the rest of your system.

question: why do you need a cat? is yours clogged, rusted or just fell off?

because if it hasn't, that's the best one for your car. the s-series cat is a hi-flow unit as long as it's working properly...
