Anyone recognize this High Flow Cat pipe?

Found this on ebay, paid $150 shipped. Guy selling it didnt even know what it was, he had it listed as a cat back exhaust and i just stumbled upon it. It has a magnaflow cat #53006. Does it look like one from our vendors or is it custom??? Is there anyway to tell if its stainless. Overal, for $150 seems like a good deal so long as it fits!

Yes thats a good deal in comparison to the price of a brand new stock Catalytic Converter from Ford. Dealership quoted me like $2000 LOL! Thanks but no thanks....

That being said, I bought that one from Jay Racing..... and the weld broke right where the magnaflow HFC connects to the pipe going upwards towards the back of the cat.

Look Familiar?



This is the carnage that happened :(
















Here's the best part, I sent it in for warranty.... car was down in the meantime of course, and they sent this back:








The flange that connects to the flex pipe wasn't even straight! So, by bolting it all up its naturally putting stress on the cat more than there was again. Needless to say, it broke AGAIN. 2nd time it broke it ripped the metal RIGHT out from the cat. Had to replace the whole cat.

I'm honestly at a point where I may just do Smog Testing to get my 2yrs then switch to straight-pipe! ENOUGH with this silly cat business.

PS: My cat is currently leaking AGAIN, 3rd time! IS there no end?!!? :'(

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.

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

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.

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