Catco Or X-force?


Recommended Posts

Couldnt decide between the 2. Catco seems to have a good reputation after my search but the X-Force one is stainless steel which I suppose is stronger? Catco's got the stainless stain version but its almost 400bucks for it (I'm not really keen on paying 400 for a cat). I know a cat is a cat but after hearing/reading post on people's melting kinda made me wanna seek some advise. Any suggestion? Oh they're both flanged which makes thing a lot easier for mounting. Thanks!

Depends on...

i) how long will you keep your car (& then a non-S/S may not matter)

ii) cfm rating of each cat (the higher the cfm the less restriction there is inside)

iii) how narrow the neck is before it meets the flange (the bigger the diameter the better)

iv) how rich your tune is (for the longevity of the cat)(some say that Jap is better than Chinese)

Officially the X-Force flows slightly more by way of CFM, but the Just Jap GTR make 330awkW with the Catco. I bought that exact Catco and the car is being tuned in a couple of weeks so I am no help from a customer's point of view right now!

Is that the cheaper Catco or the more expensive one? I'm actually thinking of getting the $180 bucks one since so many people recommended them.

The cheaper one. :P That's the one I have, for the same reason you are considering one. Also, for the same reason you didn't spend so much on a cat is why I ended up with this - I simply couldn't justify $400+!
