Yeah I just saw that, and was surprised by the new site, which is very nice, and the new high flow cat which is great. It is definitely on my list of up coming mods.

You guys might want to call and make sure they actually have them
Last I spoke to Nader, like Thurs., they weren't done yet, but very very close...

it should do good with emmisions too, its more of a cat then the random, meaning thats its a bit bigger, after owning the random(very nice quality piece) the cat part was so damn tiny, i think it was actually a precat welded in there....

I think the FC one is a tad bit larger, but still very very free flowing compared to the stock POS and should be great for those trying to stay clean

Looks like a nice piece of equipment....where is the Bosal now? We have RT and FC available, Bosal is trailing. I need a HF Cat, but want to see how this one plays out.

BTW, the new FC site is EXCELLENT. The "Find A Dealer" page is kinda funny though, with the map being from an opened atlas or some other book
. With that well done of a site, I was a bit taken back by that piece.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">The Random is not a pre cat. The Random is the best flowing cleanest cat available and its quality is second to none. You get what you pay for. If you want to save money there is nothing wrong with going with something cheaper if it fits your budget. Random Tech cat has proven itself in every way but it costs a little more.

The size of the cat isn't the only thing that makes a difference its whats in the middle. The FC cat should make better power than the Stock piece.

yeh i think the random one is awesome too from wat i hear...but im leaning towards the FC cat only cuz it should be emmissions legal, when i kno the random cat isn't...plus the svt set-up is round $700 and no one knows if that will make emissions either...i dunno cant wait tho!

well, i didnt know ray, like i said, my random was awesome, remember, i got it from you..

But the cat was tiny, i couldnt believe my eyes, it worked great, didnt stink and looked really nice, i just thought it was a precat since it was so damn smalll

either way, it was nice, and anything over stock is great...especially when staying legal

looks like a nice piece. they state a 4whp gain and i've seen the random do 7whp. so you give up a little performance for a little bit of affordability... it's going to be a tough choice.

guys all they did was take there off-road pipe and weld in there high flow cat, not much reaserch and development done there! I talked to them about this because this was exactly what i was going to do before I bought the Random Tech! The power on the R/T is sick! A little loud, but quit it down with bosals silencer.

This cat has been in the works for over 3 months but we said nothing about until it was complete. We have logged over 10k miles with no problems whatsoever and they are no ready to ship. Obviously you guys found out somehow, because we just got 50 in today and we are almost out just from filling backorders.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">7 hp for $300, or 4 hp for $250.
"IF" that is true the Random is a much better bang for the buck!

That number is a little low for the Random Tech from the one dyno I remember seeing. It was 7.9 hp and 8.2 or 8.3 lb-ft torque. To me, that was DEFINITELY worth the extra $50. It's also a complete replacement, including pipe and O2 sensor attachments.
