I'm thinking I may just replace it with pipe. I have no emissions testing where my car is registered and then I have no worries of it clogging again. Plus I'm cheap and don't feel like spending the money on another just to bottom out on it again and destroy another.
This SVT header with magnaflow aftermarket cat has been nothing but problems since I installed it a year ago.

It's POSSIBLE, but not as likely.
Loose pieces would have to fall out of the way when shut down, then plug it up again after running,,, NOT too likely...

|sleepyboy||Sounds like you have a clogged or damaged cat to me. When mine broke into pieces and clogged the pipe the exhaust note was much much quieter and I eventually had to damn near floor it just to keep up with traffic. That was when I decided to put my header on and sure enough when I took the cat off it was broken. You could even see where it was glowing red hot at one point, it discolored the metal so bad. Felt like I gain 40hp when I hollowed it out lol|

|bringler26||Huh too bad the idiot exhaust shop welded it in with no flanges. I may just gut the thing or remove it all together.|
