      Comments about Walker EPA Ultra Direct Fit Converter:

      The most difficult part of the install was determining where to cut the exhaust. Luckily the Walker Muffler website had the info. Just cut 2 inches before the weld to the resonator. BTW the Walker exhaust gasket part no. on the advance website for a 2003 Corolla is WRONG. It should be 31639, which I purchased at a local Auto Parts store. Having a air impact wrench made quick work of the rusty bolts.

              Fits perfectly and 1/5 the price of the OEM converter from the dealer. Thank goodness I don't live in California! (where I would have had to pay $1000 for a California-approved converter.) It does need some type of cylindrical clamp, such as from a VW or Audi for best connection to the exhaust system. You do need an exhaust cutting tool to remove the old converter as the system is one-piece.

              Does not fit pontiac vibe GT

              Comments about Walker EPA Ultra Direct Fit Converter:

              This product does not fit my 2003 Pontiac Vibe GT as this site says. The flange to the exhaust manifold is too wide for the bolt holes to line up, it is also a little long for replacement without modification to the new pipe and the old one before the #2 o2 senser.

                  • Q:

                    If I buy the converter and required resonator pipe, do they bolt together with clamps or do they have to be welded together?

                      Hi Den! Glad that I could help. This converter is bolt-on to the resonator pipe with 2 bolt welded flanges.

                    It says you will need a resonator pipe to complete this, but when I search for this resonator pipe no results are found
