Id assume the stock cat for a 4.0L would be 2 1/4??? Definately not 2.5'.Ive got Pacemakers and they do a good job.If your getting a cat just ask for a stock 2.5' cat and not a 2.5' sports cat.

So long as the original cat is in good condition have the shop fit it up to the 2.5 inch system.

High flow cats; sports cats and furry cats really don't make all that much difference except in what is left over in your wallet after you have the system fitted.

A genuine exhaust shop will look at your cat when they pull it off and advise you if it is suitable.

Other exhausts shops will tell you to spend $300 on a high flow cat.

Never hold a Dustbuster and a cat at the same time.

It makes good flow sense to use a big cat, the more of the surface area you expose to flow, the more efficient it works.

I had a 3 inch high flow cat, on the back of pacemakers going into 2.5 inch tailpipe. On my ED worked real well, the bastard would roar to the redline!

biggrin

BTW, the cat in my avatar is high flow as well.

And if you have more than say 100,000 k's on your car, it may be worthwhile replacing it anyway, as it is most likely stuffed.
