Is that what your converters look like? I am not the original owner of my car, but I seriously doubt that the catalytic converter was replaced in first couple of years and require replacement again. =/
Yes that's the same stock cat I pulled off of mine. I bolted Dominic's on in my driveway under the car on my back. I also went through changing out the 02 sensors 1st with no change. The nice thing about Dominic's is the 02 sensor is relocated from stock so the sensor does not get damaged. Check with the other guys on this post who also went with Dominic's again you will not be sorry.

@ ratnikov

C-F-M and Dominanteng both make quality parts either place is a good choice and will work fine. I have dealt with both places for various parts and have been satisfied with both. As for fitting, anything you get after market will not be flat like the OE cat however they are all designed to fit properly so dont let the difference in looks fool you. The only place you MAY run into a fitment issue is if your header is bent. The svt header sits very low and useually has a dent in it, this also can cause your cat to bend slightly. When you install an aftermarket cat or orp from anyone there is always the possibility it may hit the cv shaft or sit at the wrong angle due to a slight bend in the header, with a torch, prybar, and patience you can straighten it back out. Just throwing the warning out there so these aftermarket companies dont catch hell if the cat wont line up since it may not be their fault to begin with.

Two Cfm orps and both cracked. One from Dominic and two years later, still running strong.

The old design we only had a few customers with issues with them that we know about. The customers that have contact us we have helped out.

We did change the design of all of our pipes just last month. The new design is working fine. We are always willing to work with our customers too if they for some reason run into any issues with our product.

We had a few customer requesting us to make a support bracket. We are also looking to offer an optional support bracket too later on.

The design was fine, the thickness of the pipe wasn't. Otherwise, no issues.

If anyone needs a stock SVT Cat (in good shape, only 17k miles on it when it was taken off). I have one (with heat shields). I just trade the SVTf in on a black '12 mustang GT so needless to say I have no use for it!
