High Flow Cat or Test Pipe - 2011 Koup SX (2.4 L)

Hi there, I hope everyone is well. I am currently looking to install a high flow cat for my Koup, but it seems that they are almost impossible to come by nowadays. I don't really want to install a test pipe, but that seems to be my only realistic option. Does anyone have the hook up on a high flow cat for the Koup, or should I just go with the test pipe? I look forward to hearing your thoughts, thanks.

If/when I want to upgrade my exhaust, I'd go with this one:

A bit pricey, but looks like quality.


I'd avoid a test pipe for multiple reasons...

Price: $9,999.00

A bit pricey? It's more than the value of the car. WTF?

But hey, you get 7WHP/6TQ, and they have a price match guarantee!

I know about the TK one. They don't actually make them anymore, but they do have a few 3.0 in ones at the shop. They are selling them for about $350 if I remember correctly (I spoke to one of their sales reps about this), but I have a 2.5 inch exhaust atm.

Heh, yeah I noticed that, too. If you select the drop down, you'll see that it's in fact $549

lol oh, I didn't even notice the drop down with the one option. Why do they have that $9999 price even listed there? So weird.

I'm really happy with my Evilla axle back exhaust, granted that's for the 2014+ Forte5 only though.

I’ve been looking recently after a few years and talked to a sales rep as well. They don’t have them. Just the 3”. They don’t have their cat back exhausts either just the magnaflow posted. I asked about the 10k price point and didn’t get much of an answer besides them being discontinued.
