Merry Christmas, ladies and Gents [cheers]


So I need a new converter to replace the one the previous owners jacked up on this thing. I'd LIKE to find the best price possible without getting a crap piece. I see Rock Auto has them for around $200 but with the o2 sensor in the factory location, which causes problems.

I was just curious about these Magnaflow direct fit converters like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Magnaflow-D...ocus|Submodel:SVT&hash=item2eda55f979&vxp=mtr


They say they fit SVTs, but I don't see how they would be universal. Also I'm very wary of buying car parts off eBay unless they come from an individual (typically). I was just wondering if anyone has tried these.

Thanks guys!

Since its a Magnaflow product, you could call or e-mail them & see what they say. I take it the emmissions police check for convertors?

If in doubt Magnaflow has all their applications on their site. I dont think they make an SVT version though.

I've always been curious about the ST170 converters on ebay, they look high flow compared to ours. Plus they actually have brackets welded on them for the hanger.

You guys going for a convertor, cause of the emissions 50? If not, I'd do a orp,,,,

This converter is not for the SVT. It is for the regular Zetec only. The person selling it has their information wrong. As far as I know, Magnaflow does not make a replacement catalytic converter for the SVT Focus.

Thanks guys...that's what I expected.

@felix...I'm trying to get this car back to stock. An ORP would give it a bit of a ricer sound. This is my DD so I prefer to keep it tame. I have a Lightning for when it's time to go fast :)

Thanks again!
