Hey Guys

Gna put a set of pacemaker extractors in soon.
Jus wondering if i can keep the original cats in or do i need 2 get a set of high flow ones since the extractors might melt the inside of the original ones.

Thx

Up to you, but as it says on the site somewhere ' the standard cats are believed to be high flow, so when changing them, stick to high flow ' or something along those lines.
If you want a better note, Change the cats to a 300 or even 200 CPI. I'll be going in between there somewhere when I change mine.

Changing the headers won't make the cats melt. They might do, But I doubt it.

I saw a thread on this same thing the other day.

No, your cats will not melt by fitting extractors. The extractors won't stuff the cats by themselves, just the fact that you have to reposition the factory cats back under the car and because of their size, they will sit lower and you have the potential to smash them on speed humps and the like.
