Comments about MagnaFlow Universal Catalytic Converter:

I purchased this converter for my 97 Toyota t-100 because it was less expensive than the OEM. The fit was fine. The 02 sensor was farther down the line and did not affect the install. The sound is very loud. Too loud for me. It is so loud, I had to check for an exhaust leak. No leaks, and very noisy. Also the 02 sensor/engine light came back on within a few hours.

    Comments about MagnaFlow Universal Catalytic Converter:

    I suppose this is a good value if you just need a simple converter with no oxygen sensor to worry about. I had to return it because my Jeep uses an oxygen sensor that screws directly into the converter. This unit has no such port. I was told by the mfg. that I would have to cut into the exhaust pipe and weld in an O2 port. That's above my pay grade. So I found a direct fit unit with the port already installed.

      Comments about MagnaFlow Universal Catalytic Converter:

      I bought this as a replacement for OEM, driven by the difference in cost. It doesn't replace the OEM converter, as it is too short and most importantly, doesn't include the O2 sensor downline fitting.

      • Q:

        How the heck can you call this an "Exact Fit" for my 2000 Mazda MPV when I'd need to buy extra pipes with flange fittings, sensor port, and several bends to install it in my car???
        And where would I find the pipes?

          A:

          Definitely glad to assist with your question. The part catalytic converter you are looking at is a universal catalytic converter for the rear and is intended to be welded in place of the old part, thus eliminating the need for pipes, port sensors and etc. Another option for your 2000 Mazda MPV that does not involve welding is Walker Catalytic Converter - Ultra Direct Fit (Part No. 16189). Don't forget your Walker gaskets (Part No. 31374 and 31332).

      • Q:

        Is there a bung for installing the downstream O2 Sensor???

        The system/product info indicates this WILL fit a '98 TJ; but, the Catalytic Converter does not appear to have a bung allowing for installation of the downstream O2 Sensor.
