I added a Random Tech cat, and a Bosal flex over the weekend. It really helped performance! I can feel a good bit more power. I also think that it solved another strange problem that the car had. Before, when driving around town maintaining a steady rpm, it would jerk every now and then. Now it's a lot smoother. I don't know how the cat helped this, but I'm glad it did.

The only problem is that the cat came with some crappy gaskets, and now I've got an exhaust leak between stock manifold and cat. I decided it was time for a header anyway, so I'm gonna order it tomorrow. I'm getting FR street header from McNews. It should come with some damn good gaskets!
My g/f keeps telling me that the car's not loud enough yet! [:0] The new header should make her[:D]

Well, I'm already happy with the sound. I just hate the annoying exhaust leak! Will it make a noticeable diff. in power? Power is the only thing I want!
P.S. Any tips, or things I should know b4 I install the header?

I don't have small hands, or arms. I guess I'll have to get a little kid to help me[:D] . I have all the tools I need.

Yes, it did make a difference. It's noticable, for me anyway.

Are you trying to get your name on all the forums as last posted your almost there .
I hope this was a joke - or else you do not see the humorous hypocrisy in this statement.

As for Random Tech. converters, I've never heard anything bad about them. The Random Tech. cat for the MR2 is generally quite popular in that community.

Edit: I stand corrected. You DO see the hypocrisy in that statement.
