its vertically mounted right under the header....lay down under your car w/ the radiator above your neck and look straight up..you'll see that ugly POS

pop the hood, locate the header heat shield, look down past that a little bit.. big ass cat sitting right there..

actually it kinda looks like a rack of rusty ribs.. weird as that may sound.

i wonder if i could take it out and put a flex pipe in, connect the stock header and a new flexpipe to the stock flex pipe?
thanks,

No you can't do that.

Here's is your exhaust system from the catalytic converter to the tailpipe.



Your aftermarket choices are:
- Race/long header, flexpipe(stock or aftermarket), catback(stock or aftermarket)
- Street/short(stock or aftermarket), cat(stock or aftermarket), catback(stock or aftermarket)

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">it is called an OFF ROAD PIPE. i know mcnews and FC sell them and maybe FS but all it is,is a pipe that goes from your header to the stock flex pipe.
