I hear shorty headers ruin the cat convertor, is that true?

Just wondering. Due to emissions.

my car has 75k on it...if that matters.

i've heard that it can by gettin so hot and melting the cat after a while, but others have had no problems. i guess thats y most people just go with the race header or the full out svt conversion which is what i am doin

Don't have a direct answer for that. I have seen some totally slagged, and some seem to be fine. I would just go with the SVT set-up as well. It makes much more power than the shorty and doesn't cost musch more. Check here Mcnewsautomotive.com or Newedgeperformance.com

It might accelerate the breakdown a bit, but its not going to be instant death on the cat. I agree, go with the SVT header kit and RT cat. A shorty header with a stock cat offers practically zero gains over a stock header and cat.
