Designed with ease of installation in mind, MagnaFlow's direct-fit converters are the perfect compliment to your OEM exhaust system. With no welding, cutting or bending required, you can easily add one of our direct-fit converters to your vehicle when its time to replace your original catalytic converter. Whether your original converter has gone bad or you're just looking to upgrade to something more performance oriented, MagnaFlow's direct fit converters are just right. Featuring a ribbed design and funneled inlets and outlets, each converter features a stainless steel body and heat shield and contains a flow efficient, monolithic honeycomb catalyst designed for maximum flow and surface area. Best of all, our 49-state direct-fit converters are in compliance with EPA guidelines so getting a car smog checked is a worry free task.
97 TJ Sport 4.0L...Got this setup to go with Banks Headers (51327) and Banks Monster cat back (51312) as my old headers and midpipe from previous owner had a custom welded setup.
Super happy with quality. Knowing i have Magnaflow as part of my system is piece of mind. Beautiful quality and once all together, sounds wonderful.
Here's why i didn't give it 5 stars..the flange that mates up to header is recessed. On the side of downtube that bends in, you CAN'T get any socket (even a 1/4" drive) or a box wrench on it. You have to angle down with a box wrench and try not to strip anything out. I've included a picture. A simple flat flange would be perfect (Banks headers had it).
Pipe was way to close to driveshaft, i was getting a nasty clunking on decel during first test drive. A simple loosening at header and cat, spacing with a block of wood, and re-tightening, fixed the issue.
I would definitely buy this again!!

Highly recommended catalytic converter..
I had to have the downpipe fabricated to fit, it was hitting my front driveshaft. The cost for the mod was only $70 and I am blown away by the way my Jeep TJ runs now. I also added the Magnaflow catback....as well as 2 new O2 sensors. It is worth the investment, you can tell a world of difference in power, it's like adding life to the 4.0 liter inline 6. Highly recommended for all around conditions...

Does not fit Wrangler 2.5L
I was disappointed that this product does not fit the Wrangler 2.5L as advertised. The manifold flanges are not in the same locations. This kit also comes with a 2.25" flange but the 2.5L only has a 2". Wish I would have noticed this before I cut my old exhaust off. [...] Instead I contacted a local exhaust shop who was able to weld on a new flange at the correct angle/size for only $40. [...].The product itself looks outstanding; and coupled with a Monster exhaust my lil' 4 banger has a little more pep in her step. I only rated it a 4 because of the false advertising.Invest in a good set of band clamps unless you want to have a local shop weld them up for you. The kit comes with only u-bolt clamps.
