Anyone tried this cat replacement?

Saw this on Amazon, looks like a mid pipe cat replacement.

I have a Dominator cat delete, ordered from Ebay. Excellent craftsmanship & fast shipping.

I DID notice a difference after the install, way more grunt. The Delkevic header tubes (O.D.) are no larger than the OEM header tubes is why I chose to go this route, a lot cheaper as well. Not sure about Arrow headers (O.D.) or any other brand for that matter?


I did a single muffler conversion with a Z900 cat delete, this did involve some cutting & welding, as it is not a direct bolt up. I'm sure the dual outlet cat delete (made for the Z1000) will work fine. I just prefer the single sided exhaust look. Plus, it saved me a ton of cash, 1 muffler vs 2. Hotbodies Racing has a short muffler that sounds great, I think I only paid around $240/$250 for the can. Total of around $400 for the cat delete & MGP Hotbodies exhaust. Very pleased with the outcome.


There is a thread on this install, if you're planning to go that route.

I believe buying any kind of exhaust other than well known ones (acropovic, sc-project, arrow, ...) is a risk!! They all look nice and shinny the first day. But exhaust is a part that gets really hot and wet and wet when it is hot and hot when it is wet and ...!! So the material used is very important (not to lose its look after some time). It may look like crap after a season if not built from the right material. So personally I pay extra on brands. But its me. maybe a $200 set works as good.
