Question about LT headers

As long as you go with LTs w/ cats the O2 simulators aren't needed, yes?

I was on SLPs site and they had a footnote about the simulators, even though I was looking at their cat'd system. I hope their cats are effective enough that simulators aren't required.

b.t.w. If I go with the SLP LTs, I'll probably go w/ Corsa's touring cat-back. Anybody else have this set-up? I would go w/ SLP's LM2s, but I figured the whole thing would be too loud. I just want a mellow rumble that sounds like *HP*...don't want drone and interior vibrations, or a 2-stroke dirt-bike sound.

Thanks

That's okay, it's going to be a month or so before I actually get the LTs and cat-back. After that, I'll get a shifter, then have the car tuned...then it'll be a looong time before I start thinking serious mods like cam, heads, etc...

NO, you will not need the 02 sims if you are running cats!

Thanks. SLP just threw me off when they mentioned that sims might be needed, even though I was looking at their LTs w/ cats. Made me worry about the quality of their cats.

as long as their are two bungs for the 02 sensors to plug into (before and after the cat) you dont need the sims. BUT if there is not one behind the cat, that may be why they say you need one but its cheaper to just have a bung welded in and utilize the O2 sensor.

I can clearly see the bungs for the downstream O2s in this photo, but I can't see too clearly around the collector. It does mention extension harnesses.

I'll probably give them a call before I do anything. I really like the looks of their product.

from the way they write it up, they dont have the rear O2 bungs and suggest you get the simulators. That blows.....

I have the Stainless Works (SW) headers, high flow cats, and the 3" exhaust. Sounds great, noticeable power increase, and the SW does have all 4 O2 bungs.
