I'm trying to make a decision what replacement cat to get for my Borla Exhaust. Rodney told me his replacement is s/s so it's a perfect candidate (2nd option down) http://www.rodneydickman.com/n58.html but I'd like a s/s headpipe to go with it too and TFS store offers this package.
1988 V6 STAINLESS STEEL CATALYTIC CONVERTER KIT Part # 54457


Another option I guess would be to get Rodney's cat and then a s/s headpipe from TFS that I could cut the cat into separate.
1988 V6 STAINLESS STEEL PERFORMANCE HEADPIPE Part # 54408

Would everything fit properly though if I went this route.
Thanks for any input Marc

I was planning on getting the stainless headpipe from F/S , and Rodney's stainless cat.

I don't think the FS cat fits the Borla system does it? For the Borla you need Rodney's cat with the larger outlet.

You'd think so huh, but I had this Borla system on my previous 88GT hooked up to a oem cat! I took it to a shop to have it installed so maybe they used an adapter if there is such a thing?

There are adapters, though off the shelf they typically aren't stainless. The ones we sell are Marwell, complete crap pipe and welding it to stainless is a pita. The shop may have stainless adapters though.

I usually prefer as few connections as possible.

I hear ya. For more than one reason no adapters would be better. I'll go with Rodneys cat w/TFS s/s headpipe. Thanks for chiming in!
