Performance catalytic converter for 03 ZX3
 
im gonna need a new cat soon because mine is very rusted and its something i am going to have to replace down the road within this year. I want to get a performance one and i saw some magnaflow converters but none are for an 03 ZX3 2.0 w/automatic transmission. Does anyone know of a performance cat that will fit my car (direct fit)?? links would be appreciated.

These are for the SVT, so I don't know if these apply to the ZX3 or not but there aren't any listed under the regular focus on their site:

maybe someone can chime in confirming one way or the other.

It should be fine. As long as you have a Zetec.

its depends if you wanto be carb compliant your gonna have to pay more to stay legal if thats what your going for, the magnaflow 25202 isnt. http://www.magnaflow.com/02catalytic...irectfit=49231 part #49231 should be but is more expensive

The catalytic converter listed by TerryB is still legal. The only difference between the two is that the other one has a CARB(California Air Restrictions Board) number on it. That is needed to pass vehicle inspections in the state of California only. The converters that TerryB gave a link to is ok to use in New York.
