Blue5ive In Houston they only plug into obd2 and do no visual inspection for cat and no tailpipe testing so orp can work with a tune. But I might go this route in case they change the rules later on.

tukaniSVT Well ... look forward to the prototypes to get back to you guys with the correct holes.

I hope we see some great gains from this setup.

Regarding option 3. California has a list of requirements to make a replacement converter. It is more difficult than someone would like. For that reason, I am not sure what the possibility will be for us to offer one.

The converter itself would be 50 state legal. Magnaflow shows it being legal in California. I am thinking it would pass the obd-2 and smog test in California. It has the required stampings on the converter.

The visual inspection would be the concern. If the inspector knows how the SVTF looks like, they may not pass the visual inspection. The reason being even though the factory o2 sensors are in a bad location from the factory, I do not believe California will allow them to be placed in a different location. That and they might not like the pipe we offer only has one converter vs two like the factory one.

cfmfocus2 I am sorry to say the offroad pipes and highflow cat pipes are being delayed. There was an issue with the 3 bolt flanges. The manufacturer who makes the flanges for us made them with an incorrect bolt pattern. We are waiting for new ones to be made. This means were are looking at a estimated date on these being completed towards the end of September. If we are able to have these completed sooner, we will post an update. We do apologize for the delay. We do appreciate your business.

tukaniSVT Will you guys be doing a dyno run and have the dyno sheets laid out for all to see?

I would be curious to see the differences in the power-band between the old HFC/ORP vs These new designs you guys are putting out.

1 and 2 would perform better than the current one. The body design of those first two converters allow for better exhaust flow. The first one is the best for performance given the converter cell count is 200, which is less restrictive than a 400 cell count converter.

If it was posted, I missed it.

Interested in seeing some test numbers on a Dyno amongst all of the Cats here. These 3 plus the current HFC and ORP.

I am also looking for a HFC, since I am not getting tired of the ORP.

cfmfocus2 We appreciate the feedback. I have also contacted some customers by e-mail and by phone. After reviewing the feedback, we have decided to offer all three options. Our goal will be to keep in-stock the more popular options 1 and 2. The option 3 will be made to order.

We are currently waiting for the converters to arrive in to assemble the cat pipes. The converters for option 1 will arrive here soon, which will be available first. The option 2 and 3 converters may take a little longer to obtain given those are on back order, which means it will be available later.
