Hi Flow Metallic Substrate 3" catalytic converter

Metallic substrate catalytic converters are a new type of converter where the core has very fine fins which allows air to flow much better than the ceramic substrate cores.

I've been looking ages for a suitable one but only the 4" round ones being advertised have been available and very expensive.

Now there is a genuine 3" with oval body available which is much easier to fit and flows better than anything currently on the market. They are now in hi performance usage in the states but not much here yet. I bought some extra ones over from the states so I've got a couple of spare ones if anyone is interested email me on tgoodlich@hotmail.com. I've attatched pictures. If anyone asks, yes they comply with Californian Emission Regs.

Re: Hi Flow Metallic Substrate 3" catalytic converter

I rang psi products today about one of these. They claim to flow almost double what a regular one does. What sort of prices are yours going for?? I prefer round instead of oval. The Caxx brand is 200cpi by the way.

The 200 cpi is metal substrate and only $380. The lower the cpi the more flow right??

Re: Hi Flow Metallic Substrate 3" catalytic converter

The 3" ones I have are $285. They do come in 2.5" also. But remember this is a Metallic Substrate which is alot finer than a ceramic substrate, hence the reason they flow so much better. Metal foil is .0012 thick while ceramic is typically .012 thick. Ceramic is old tech now and metal cats are new tech, especially for turbos. They have heaps of other benefits as well like converter gets to operating temp quicker, does not crack or disintegrate under harsh operating environments and less likely to melt than ceramic.
