Hey guys, I need some help with my full exhaust setup. I am trying to make it bolt on in 3ish pieces: header, cats, and catback (2 pieces). I'm going bolt on to avoid any welding as I have a limited budget. My current exhaust is rusty and the previous owner replaced the flanged with pipes and added a welded in flexpipe which has failed with a gnarly crack/leak.

 

 

What I'm buying:

  • Inferno Fabrications single port uel header (2.25")
  • OBX catback (2.25") made for the 1998-2001 Impreza RS.

 

What I am looking to buy/have found:

  • Aftermarket catalytic converter (1 piece) made to fit in 2.5L (1997-2005 Legacys, Foresters, Outbacks, and 2.5L Impreza's).

 

 

Does anyone know the inlet/outlet diameter size of these catalytic converters or what size donuts or flanges to use?

I've been searching on many forums (here,nasioc, rs25, and a few others) but can't seem to find an answer. 

Any input would be appreciated.

Not certain of this will fit the 98 or not, but I have used 3 of these to date. First was over 2 years ago without any failures. Only shortcoming is the smaller diameter nuts they send to use with the springs/donut flange end, Comes with 5 year warranty. So far very pleased.

 

About $130 and $20 for shipping .... out of Canada,,,,, and shipping was very prompt.

Ferret, thanks for the reply! Unfortunately here in New York, my car has to use a CARB compliant cat, otherwise I would buy this one! Sellers don't even ship them here even if they're not CARB compliant :/

If you are looking to cut costs why not just replace the system with a kit from Rock Auto

 

Everything but the cat $186 + Shipping

Originally your car came with a two piece cat

 

Front CARB compliant:  $220

Rear CARB compliant:  $211

I don't know if the one-piece will fit $235
