        Comments about MagnaFlow Direct Fit Catalytic Converter:

        Replaced the CAT in my 2001 VW Jetta 1.8T with this Magnaflow aftermarket. I was getting code P0420- Catalyst System: Bank 1: Efficiency Below Threshold. I replaced the CAT and O2 sensors with parts from AA and the problem went away. Install was a year ago, and have not had any more problems. This is the first time in years I have had no check engine lights on in my Jetta!

        Self install took a few hours with jackstands and some PB blaster to get old rusty bolts off of the turbo. Be sure to get a new exhaust gasket as the old one will be destroyed when you remove your cat.

        This sounds a little different from the stock exhaust (not any more aggressive than stock), and will not win any awards for increased performance since the pipe diameter is the same as stock. Overall very pleased.
