BMW 5-Series With PRE-OBDII Models 1988, Pre-OBDII Catalytic Converter by MagnaFlow®. Emissions: CARB compliant. Converter Configuration: Universal Fit. Catalytic Converter Body Shape: Oval. Without Air Tube. Catalytic Inlet Diameter: 2". OEM Spec. If your car needs a new catalytic converter, install one that will get you through the smog check. This universal fit converter will require some fabrication to be installed, which will involve cutting the exhaust pipe and may require welding. The Catalytic Converter is available in Pre-OBD II, OBD II, and OEM Grade OBD II configurations.
- Cutting and Welding Required During Installation
- To ensure precise fit, please check catalytic converter shape, length and inlet diameter: the latter should match your exhaust pipe diameter.

Magnaflow 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 Catalytic Converter is a universal fit unit and will require some fabrication or modification to the exhaust system to be installed. Cutting and welding may be required, so you may want to consider professional installation. 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 Catalytic Converter to be free of manufacturer's defects for a period of 5 years and emissions failure for 25,000 miles. Catalytic Converters on vehicles registered in California carry a 5 year, 50,000 mile warranty against manufacturer's defects and emissions failure.
