MagnaFlow specializes in superior catalytic converter and exhaust technology and has spent the past 30+ years earning its reputation as a global market leader. American engineered and manufactured, MagnaFlow Catalytic Converters combine efficient industrial design to produce a product that exceeds, rather than meets, the highest standards of product performance and efficiency in the industry. MagnaFlow uses Ceramic substrates with different combinations of cell density and wall thickness to meet vehicle specific requirements.

MagnaFlow Direct-Fit Catalytic Converters are designed for easy bolt-on installation for the Professional Installer. Each is designed to exact the original equipment specifications. While the majority of the Direct-Fit Catalytic Converter products do not require welding, cutting or bending, limited applications may require additional welding for optimal installation.

All California State Catalytic converters are CARB compliant. Converters are based on Executive Orders issued by the California Air Resource Board and must be used in accordance with this information. In California, it is illegal to select a catalytic converter for installation based solely on vehicle weight and engine size.

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.

MagnaFlow® has been in business for more than 30 years, with its slogan "Quality – Power – Sound" leading the company on its steady path to success. MagnaFlow is the market leader in exhaust systems. No other brand has managed to fulfill the demands auto enthusiasts have on their exhaust systems, while still complying with emission standards, as MagnaFlow has. The product line is steadily expanding, introducing new, cutting edge technologies and designs. MagnaFlow is the leader in exhaust system design and the company is determined to stay in the lead.


The manufacturer warrants that all Magnaflow Performance Products are free from defects. Most of exhaust products are warranted against blowouts and defects in material and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which it was originally installed. The warranty is void if the exhaust products are not installed properly on the vehicle for which it is designed.

This warranty does not apply to any exhaust product which has been installed on any commercial or racing vehicle or which has been improperly installed, altered, or subjected to misuse or damage from accidents. Also, cost of labor and any additional parts required to complete installation of a replacement product are not covered by this warranty.

The warranty certificate, along with proof of purchase, MUST be presented to the service outlet from which you originally purchased the exhaust product, or any participating dealer, when making a claim for replacement. The original exhaust product must also be returned and exchanged for a new exhaust product of the same part number.

No other warranty, expressed or implied (including merchantability), applies to the exhaust product, nor is any person or the manufacturer authorized to assume any other warranty. The manufacturer does not assume any responsibility for any consequential damages occurred by the exhaust product, or inconvenience or interruption in any operation.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

It installed really easy. After installing the check engine light went off. Very pleased with the product. Sounds like a new truck again.

Was Not a Direct Replacement.
The product was not a direct fit. There was a 4” difference between this product and the OEM. The repair shop had to manufacture the additional tubing to make this product work for $145, including labor.

2011 Nissan Juke Rear Cat
Very well built, with strong weld. Old unit had broken on the bracket. This product was about 0.25 inch shorter than the old unit causing the factory bolts not to fit.

I bought this product about a month ago and in less than that time it actually physically broke off from the exhaust manifold. I don't mean that the screws fell out: I mean that the converter broke off from the part that attached it to the manifold. Not even lasted a whole month and it was attached to a stock 2000 Altima.

Part Made Wrong
The part was welded upside down and the flanges to not match my existing part. Also the mounting rod was twice as thick as the original and mount won't go over it.

Sounds Great
I purchased the entire header back that was offered by MagnaFlow. So first off is the noticeable increase in power. Second, is the great sound that now my exhaust makes. The only complaint I have and they do send a warning, so it's not like I was unaware, is that I had to do minor modifications to the driver's side header and to the catalytic converter. Neither one was a direct fit. Putting that aside the system is worth every penny. I would recommend it to any Camry owner. FYI, if you are not use to a louder exhaust note be prepared. Love the sound!

Perfect Fit
My catalytic converter had gone bad on my 08 Dodge Charger & I needed one right away, the dealer wanted $1000 & CARiD had it for way cheaper. It was delivered on time & I am very happy & so is my baby girl (my car :)). Thanks a lot.

Pretty Happy Customer
I bought this cat for my Accord along with a cold air intake, some headlights and fog lights from CARiD. I'm very happy with it all, my Honda sounds and looks awesome! I had to get a replacement cat because my check engine light started to come on 18 months after I bought it, but it was a no hassle return process and they made it right. I'll continue to buy from CARiD. Can't wait to get my S2000 and get some goodies for it!!
