well they don't really say how many cells they are so wouldn't think that they are any more flow then the stock ones are. also they're universal so you'll have to customize them to fit your exhaust..


if i had a 2.8 and was doing a custom exhaust then i would get these and fab up some V-band clamps onto them for easy installation. then i would make some testpipes with the same dimensions so i could switch them out in minutes.. just my .02 cents

sorry not trying to steal the thread, i just have a question about the labree high flo cat. i was looking at the labree website and it said that for the past four years their exhaust systems were designed for audi b6/b7 models...does the high flo cat work on the b5?

i could use a bump on this one too. i'm trying to get rid of the CEL for cat inefficiency and i'm out of the VIN range for the TSB so i'm pretty sure it's the cats.

i'm willing to go catless and do something w/ the exhaust to get some better sound (i'm in an '01 2.8 30v).

if i go catless, do i need to mess w/ the o2 sensors also? does the labree high flow cat work on a 30v 2.8?

just gut your current cat, weld a pipe through it, and call it a day.

But if you have to have cats, Labree is the only way to go.

so the labree high flow cat will work on stock 2.8 30v piping (2001, ATQ)? will i still have the CEL issue or is the cell/matrix count in the labree HFC good enough (150+ for B5's?) to keep the CEL away?

i'm looking for a solution that works, period. if replacing the OEM cats with labree's is good enough to keep the CEL away, i'll throw on a magnaflow muffler and be a happy camper.

again, this is an '01 2.8 ATQ 30v

i'm in kansas so i don't have to worry about emissions.

Yes. If there is a stock or high flow cat it will change the numbers enough so that it does not throw a cell/(check engine light).

There expensive. You can go on ebay and get some magnaflow ones for 60.

i'm feeling a little more confident with this now, thanks.

i think i'm getting close to finding an exhaust shop now.
