Any of the local exhaust shops that I have dealt with don’t do what I consider quality work. When I originally called many of them up they weren’t great at listening either when I explained again and again that this wasn’t a regular Focus. If I need to have something fabbed then I would want to purchase a good aftermarket performance Cat (suggestions here would be great) as well as bungs and some stainless u-bends for the remainder. This still gets very expensive and if someone it already jigged to do this work like CFM I would rather hit the easy button on this solution and go with them.

The O2 sensors read the exhaust after the Cats so this does make a difference in how the car runs and what the computer adjusts for. The open cavity with the catalyst missing does cause unwanted back pressure as well that will rob horsepower. I hollowed out a cat on a 305 V8 Chevrolet and you could notice the difference.

Who is Dominic? Is this an SVT Cat?

I did receive a response from CFM. They said that they were not in stock and they would contact me when they were. I would however prefer an estimate as to when they will be in and have written them back. I can share that answer here as well when I get it.



Thanks Mark

In case it helps you--I was told by someone with experience that hollowing out the SVT cat does work well, not resulting in power loss.

Even with the high flow cat in you have to tune for it to see real gains. The size and shape of an SVT cat lends to hollowing and the improved tune can adjust for the O2 sensor, or even better, be shut off so you can pull it and install a wide band a/f gauge instead.

Guys,

Thanks for all the info. I just sent a note to DominantEng@hotmail.com
