Default High Flow Cats

Hi, Just read an article by catalytic converter.com on the myth there is about high flow cats. It appears there is no such thing as high flow cats. Before anyone replies please read the article, it will possibly open your eyes.
The article is titled Cleaning up the myth about high flow cats.

Thank you for posting the link. It should help those that think the stock cats restrict flow. As I have said before, stock cats work well, no need to replace them.

Yup! The only thing you can do to improve flow is delete them, that is if you live in a state where that is legal. No luck in TX

I got brainwashed about 12 years ago about converters and decided to buy 2 for the sports car I use to own; had to do an emissions test under Ontario law through the tailpipes and it failed terribly, even though John B(internet store owner) said it would pass with no problems when I bought them.

A Lot of people have purchased So-called hi-flow cats because they were told that it would make a difference. Not so these days, eh.

Thats the hold up on me buying ARH long tubes. They are only sold with cats already attached. And they are the "high flow" cats that just kinda annoys me.

I guess I could sell my old ones. Just wish they sold the headers by themselves
