Product Details

Universal Fit Catalytic Converter by MagnaFlow®. If your car needs replacement, 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.

Features:

  • Reduces harmful emissions
  • Increased exhaust flow allows your engine to make more power
  • Requires fabrication or modifications to be installed into exhaust system
  • Cutting and welding may be required; consider professional installation
  • Ribbed body to minimize expansion and distortion, holding the ceramic catalyst in proper alignment
  • Strongest and smoothest flowing inlet and outlet joint of any manufacturer
  • Each inlet tailored to the size of the converter body
  • Converter body manufactured from heavy-duty stainless steel
  • Seam welded for a strong, tight bond
  • Available in Pre-OBD II, OBD II, and OEM Grade OBD II configurations
  • On vehicles registered outside California, the converter is warranted against construction defects for 5 years and against emissions failure for 25,000 miles
  • On vehicles registered within California, the converter is warranted against construction or emissions check failure for 5 years or 50,000 miles
  • Proudly made in the USA

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.

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.

Warranty

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.

Needed a Cat Converter to Pass CA Smog
It came on time. I had a shop install it on my 1981 Pontiac Trams AM SE (bandit car). It went in with no special problems, and my car passed CA Smog with lots of room to spare. Also, between it, and the resonator, the car isn't that loud.

MagnFlow Converter for 2001 Camaro 3.8L
The product for one, was exactly how I thought it would. New and had no rust or anything! I had it installed in about 30 minutes by a professional and although it was 1/4 in too small, the guys opened it up to the 1/2 needed for my 2001 Camaro. Absolutely astonished by how much of a difference in the drive of the car I felt afterward honestly. Great buy, worth every penny!

My Exhausting Day !
The MagnaFlow Pre-ODBII Catalytical Convertor is a very well made and inexpensive fix to my exhaust system woes. Made of high quality steel it was a breeze to weld into my exhaust system . .
