Those welds look so bad! Like a cheap amateurish small town muffler shop would do. Plus there seems to be 2 types of pipe materials in there.

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.

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.

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.
