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 with Header.
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.
This Direct Fit Catalytic Converter is part of the exhaust header/manifold assembly, and replacement of the converter requires replacement of the entire assembly. The interface at the outlet will allow the assembly to be bolted into the exhaust system. No fabrication or modifications are usually required.
This converter assembly is available in OBD II (On-Board Diagnostics, 2nd Generation) and Pre-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.
On vehicles registered outside the state of California, Magnaflow warrants the Direct Fit Catalytic Converter with Header to be free of manufacturer’s defects for a period of 5 years and emissions failure for 25,000 miles. The Direct Fit Catalytic Converter with Header on vehicles registered in California carries a 5 year, 50,000 mile warranty against manufacturer’s defects and emissions failure.
Note: Always consult emissions regulations before replacing a catalytic converter.232.04 935.78

This unit was purchased to replace a clogged catalytic converter on a 2009 Pontiac G6 4-cylinder engine, where the converter is built into the exhaust manifold. Product fit Ok and came with gaskets, which was a plus. On the OEM unit, the heat shield bolted to the exhaust manifold and there was no place to make this connection with the Magnaflow unit. The heat shield also had to be bent some to be reinstalled at all. The OEM unit had threaded holes for the heat sink bolt and other attachment points. The Magnaflow had these connection holes, but they were not threaded and I had to search for bolts to use as the OEM bolts could not be reused. It was the same with attaching the manifold to the exhaust pipe. The OEM unit had studs threaded into it and the Magnaflow just had drilled holes, which I had to find bolts to fit, which of course was not expecting and did not have any readily available, which extended the installation time. Overall, it worked OK. I don't think they should call it a direct fit until they fix these little issues. Including bolts would have been extremely helpful and saved me a lot of time.9 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?
