94 Civic Ex Sedan
Here is my review 1 week after installation.
First off, the Magnaflow Cataclytic Converter states "direct fit" It is not a direct fit. I had to file down my cat-to-downpipe bolts so that they could fit through the holes in the cat
Secondly the springs now were too big to allow the bolt through to start a thread. This led to me spending a good deal of time cutting three rings off the springs with a hacksaw (I wish I could say that was fun....)
Also, the back of the new Cat did not have attached bolts like the OEM one has . So I had to get some bolts, washers and nuts from Ace Hardware. Right now I am saying, "Direct fit my ass; and I am pissed at this P.O.S. F-Magnaflow...." etc... lol I'm not really that mad in the long run though. (It's better than OEM $500 cat replacement).
To top it all off, with this jerry rigged setup, I have steadily been having a louder and louder car and it is now sounding like Rice and I am not too pleased. I went under just now and tightened all my bolts. Hopefully this solves the loudness which is probably a steadily increasing exhaust leak in my opinion. Ill update with any info
Either way I am a little irritated that it claimed to be direct-fit.
Another funny thing: There was a little piece of paper in the box that told me to follow the "Installation Instructions". There were no Installation Instructions.......
