For starters, my exhaust manifold was cracked. Was able to see one small crack but what I didn't see was the massive crack hidden by the intake manifold.
Replaced the OEM exhaust manifold with a Drake Off Road header.
Discovered I still had a rattle of some form. Upon careful inspection, it seems to be coming from the Cat Convertor. (My S-10 did the same thing.) I will not be replacing the Head pipe (I think that is what it is called) and the Cat. I was looking at the MagnaFlow (Magnaflow 23227 - MAGNAFLOW Performance 49 State Direct Fit Catalytic Converter for 97-99 Jeep® Wrangler TJ with 4.0L Engine - Quadratec
) Cat system. Has anyone used this Cat and is it really as easy to install as they claim?
After I install the Cat System I will move on to the muffler/cat back. I was thinking about using the MagnaFlow (MagnaFlow Exhaust Part 17125 - Off-Road Pro Series Cat-Back System
). Again any thoughts on this product and how easy is the install?
I am nothing more than a shade tree mechanic with not specialty tools (welder, grinder, etc).
Sorry this thread took so long but I need some insight from my fellow Jeepers. Thank you.
