iminhell Hollowing the cat will create more restriction than having it on and working.

02rsv02zx3 I will proly be working on trying to punch the cat out this weekend... I also found a orp... So if I can't make this work I will have buy/build a orp... I have done it on cars and trucks before where u can actually take a pipe and a hammer and core out the cat... It takes some time but cheaper than spending 150+ on a orp...

homelessmonkey The flex pipe is what connects to the exhaust it bolts right up to the zx3 exhaust but you have to slot the holes on the flex so that the zx3 exhaust bolts will line up.

The only difference between the magnaflow cat back from an svt exhaust and an zx3 is that the svt has a resonator in the straight section.

I dont know what u mean by hollow out the cat.

02rsv02zx3 Did the svt cat bolt directly to the zx3 exhaust? I have a magnaflow cat back on my car now and just purchased all the parts from a member here... Do I need a svt cat back??? Also did u hollow out the cat? Or just run it as normal?

CotyM Yep, that's it, I tried getting a pic, but Linux Mint wasn't being a happy customer with flash, or with chrome anyway, so pausing when I wanted was a nono lol.
