i would use the stuff they sent you. they did send you stuff, right? odds are, your stock stuff is rusted and partially stripped, right? did you get the ceramic coated one? if not, then, you may want to use some heat maint on the mild steel.

When you take the stock cat off, you will notice that t on the header and flex pipe, there are no bolts. you need aftermarket ones. they should ahve been included with the ORP.

UMMMMMM...h/o...i would take the ORP to a hardware store, and match up nuts and bolts. your gonna need 5, right? 5 bolts? ok, get 5 bolts with the nuts, and 2 washers per each, and a lock washer for each. so, heres a part list. i dont know the sizes, but this is it:

5 Bolts
5 Nuts
10 Washers
5 Lock washers


He did send you the O2 cheater and all didnt he?

all you really need is to be sure the bolts fit thru the holes on the ORP, and are long enough to go thru the ORP Flange and header flange, and then the ORP flange thru the flex flange.

Alright. be sure to pot the sizes and stuff, some gjys might be interested in it. i have the cheater. hey, if your check engine light it on, take it to advance auto or some autoparts store, and have the run a diagnostic. also, when you take your O2 sensors out, be sure not to touch the sensor part with your fingers. be very careful with them. dont mix them up either. as a matter of fact, run and have your check engine light scanned at an auto parts store before you do this, b/c it might be an O2 sensor that needs replacing, and if so, just go ahead and get the sensor, and install while you put the ORP on. you will enjoy the ORP.

it will be a very easy install...well haha i had taken mine off several times so the last time i took it off i think i did it in record time with floor jacks haha i probably got it off and the cat back in in like 45 mins or less make sure you get the o2 socket to unscrew the o2 from the catalytic converter and get some PB blaster!! trust me man i stripped the bolts on my cat bolts the first time i took it off ESPECIALLY careful with the bolts up by the flex pipe they will round very very quick! keep me posted i want to help u get that thing on
