Damnit!! I wish I had found thatt Tsudo!! I just bought a stock replacement cat section for $190. Wonder if I can return it.


The Tsudo have about the best reputation for low end header and mid pipe. Most people have had very little issue with them.

ebay option for $120-130 is fine. Speed daddy or whatever. I wouldn't get a high flow Tsudo cat, it sounds raspy and like crap. Stick to your stock cats and get the UEL header, Tsudo or not, and an STi catback.

Have a shop install it all at once.

The OP has a 01 4eat, that means oil cooler. Hopefully you can get away with using the smaller wrx oil filter. May have to do a filter relocation kit or just ditch the oil cooler and use a smaller filter... or hack up the header and fix it.

or it might bolt up. The rs's didn't have the factory oil coolers.

what about it didnt fit? hitting oil filter or header not wide enough?

did you see my last post?
i didnt see that post but yea it dosnt fit in the sense that its not long enough to reach the other side. so to make it work it would have to get cut and lengthend. id rather spend a lil more and fet a proper fit.

you don't have to cut it, it just needs to be spred out some. with the inconsistency of the way the headers fit it is probably an issue with it getting banged around during shipping.
