I need some suggestions here please... I just finished installing my new muffler (magnaflow i got for $40), when I went to start it the thing just freakin ROARED (out of the wrong hole :( ). Turns out my cat was SO rusted, it completely broke off right before the cat.(where it just starts to taper upwards)

any suggestions on what I should do? I'm probably gonna end up gettina new cat (ebay?) and 2.25" down pipe and all new piping back to the muffler... but crushed or mendrel bent? (i know that mendrel bent is better but its $$ that matters) and whats the average cost for something like this?

if its not illegal, just take the cat out. than all u would need to do is buy the 2.25 piping. be a little cheaper for ya.
Well, from past experience, I'd get a new cat, off eBay or sumthing, only $50 or so. I honestly couldn't stand the smell of my exhaust when I strait piped my car. Get an exhaust shop to bend you the whole system and install your highflow cat all at the same time. If they have the skills, y pipe it and have the GT exhaust. Go 2.25 or bigger.
