Has anybody used the Magnaflow universal high-flow cat? It's crazy expensive ($500+), but if it works, it would be worth it.

This thread is back....again!!

Anyway, the any ZX3 OR SVT catback can work with the SVT header/flex/cat. The flange where the catback bolts to the flex may have to have the holes drilled out to fit to the larger flange on the flex, but it can work. My setup is the SVT header, ORP and flex bolted to a ZX3 Borla catback. The flange on the Borla had to be drilled out a little, but it's not too hard to make it work. The only difference is that a ZX3 catback will be a little louder, because it usually lacks the extra resonator that a SVT catback has.

If you get the trubendz exhaust, it comes with a flange that has the bolt holes already slotted. It will fit either flex pipe, SVT or Zetec.
