macdiesel The post cat 02 sensor is in a bad spot. Riht at the bend. My original cfm hfc looked like one in picture and ended up cracking in a few places. One of which was on the second O2 bung. I believe cfm did away with that design due to failures.

svtguy88 As a side note as far as fitting around heat shields and such go - I ripped most/all of the factory shielding off, as ~10 years of Winter had already caused them to vibrate like mad.

I wrapped the cat (well, not the cat, but the piping) in heat wrap and have never had any issues.

Also theres barely enough space with the oem oval cat/heat shields i cant imagine with that big a$$ round cat. Its gotta be touching/vibrating/putting stress somewhere
Welds arnt that bad and its the same cat both CFM and jay racing use. It does seem like two types of pipe though. I put an O2 bung in last week for a wideband and will be installing this weekend so we will see.

Missourileo I went through two from Jays racing and then went to Dominic. Have been running his ORP for almost three yrs with no problems.

svtguy88 Found this thread because I was searching for the name of the company I bought my cat from (Jayracing) and just thought I'd throw in that the one I bought a few years ago is still holding strong. I'll admit that my SVT has been off the road for a while, but for the year (or so) of road time it had with this cat, it was fine -- and a deal, from what I remember.

BigRed03 iirc, CFM started putting a support bracket on the HFCs recently to remedy this, because theirs did the same in a couple instances.

Jon_SVT I wish you the best of luck in using that Cat and hope it doesn't crack, because its a HELL of a nightmare when it breaks.
