When your catalytic converter requires replacement, you can install a factory-like unit that will let you pass a smog check, or you can install a Magnaflow converter that will pass the smog check and increase exhaust flow. If you want to be legal and get a performance increase, the choice is clear. Magnaflow is a performance exhaust system manufacturer, so they know all the tricks to increase exhaust flow for more power. They’ve also been producing catalytic converters for 30 years, so they’ve learned a thing or two along the way. All the exhaust flow knowledge they’ve accumulated has been packed into the design of this Direct Fit Catalytic Converter.
The heart of the Magnaflow converter is the monolithic ceramic honeycomb catalyst, which is specially designed for maximum exhaust flow and surface area. Magnaflow carefully controls the application of the precious metal catalyst to the honeycomb surface to prevent flow restriction or an emissions test failure. All Magnaflow converters have a ½” lap joint where the neck meets the body, and the neck is formed so it doesn’t extend into the converter body where it could hamper exhaust flow. As a result, the Magnaflow converter has a smoother flowing inlet/outlet joint than any other manufacturer. Magnaflow also carefully matches the size of the inlet to the converter body, because putting a larger neck on a smaller body would reduce airflow.
Besides incorporating features that increase exhaust flow for better performance, Magnaflow also builds their converters to last. The converter body is manufactured from heavy-duty stainless steel for maximum durability. All converters are seam welded close to the converter body for a strong, tight bond, not along the edge, which would allow the converter to expand and let the catalyst move around. And the aluminized steel or stainless steel heat shield creates a rigid wall of protection against heat and adds to the structural stability of the converter.
The Direct Fit Catalytic Converter is an exact replacement for your stock converter, with an interface at either end that will allow it to be bolted into the exhaust system. No fabrication or modifications are usually required. It’s available in OBD II (On-Board Diagnostics, 2nd Generation), Pre-OBD II, and OEM Grade OBD II configurations. Pre-OBD II is for early vehicles (generally 1995 or older), which were equipped with 2-way, 3-way, or 3-way with air injection converters. Two-way converters oxidize harmful Hydrocarbons (HC) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) along with secondary oxygen into water (H2O) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Along with the previously detailed conversion, a 3-way converter also reduces oxides of nitrogen (NOx) into Nitrogen (N2). The 3-way with air injection converter operates the same as a 3-way converter but with the addition of air pumped into the converter to improve the oxidation capabilities.
OBD II converters are for 1995 and newer vehicles and are 3-way converters. OEM Grade OBD II converters are for vehicles registered outside of the state of California, with California spec emissions. More precious metals are applied to the substrate on these converters to further reduce emissions. To determine if this converter is right for your vehicle, find the VECI (Vehicle Emissions Control Information) label in the engine compartment and look for the word “California” on the label.
On vehicles registered outside the state of California, Magnaflow warrants the Direct Fit Catalytic Converter to be free of manufacturer’s defects for a period of 5 years and emissions failure for 25,000 miles. Direct Fit Catalytic Converters on vehicles registered in California carry a 5 year, 50,000 mile warranty against manufacturer’s defects and emissions failure.
Note: Always consult emissions regulations before replacing a catalytic converter.323.05 533.03

I bought this product and gave it to my mechanic to install on the Beetle. I was a little worried that it wouldn't fit, but a few hours later the mechanic called me and said the car was finished! He said he had no issues installing it. I turned the car on and heard a sweet sound of purr. I believe that my horse power went up a little too. I want to thank CARiD and the agent who helped me in picking this out for my car! You guys are awesome! I'm going to be ordering the rest of the muffler system to finish the Magnaflow system in my car. I highly recommend this if you are going to need one for your 2000 Beetle, it fits great, and works great!Was this review helpful for you?

I've had this exhaust on my car for about 3 months, and I have no complaints at all. It sounds awesome with the car deep tone, and you can definitely hear your turbo spool so much better, and there's a good amount of HP increase.Was this review helpful for you?

I love this exhaust. Has a nice mild deep tone to it. When first installed, it was a little louder than I liked. But after putting about 300 miles on it the spin mellowed out and now sounds perfect! This with my stage one intake gives the car a slightly noticeable power increase. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good sound for their GTI! Also really simple to install yourself. Put my car on jacks and me and my step dad put it in within 45 minutes.Was this review helpful for you?

The product is great and the sound is even greater. I really recommend this product for VW holders. What I like specially, the sound of it while shafting the great it gives very strong toruing sound.Was this review helpful for you?

Shipping time was in a very respectable time period. I love the way my GLI sounds now, a nice roar. Not to loud and not to low. Had a little trouble putting it together with my brother but once it's on it's veryyy nice.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
