a 98 200sx se, look at under his name.


However I believe either the older (b13) or the newer (b14) are a little more high flow then the other, but I don't remember. I think it was Liu that told me that, but I honestlly dont know.

However the SE-R cats will fit, mine is from a 96. If the SE-L does fit, its newer, probably has Less miles (check with sellers) so I would go with taht.

Would an 99 SE-L cat-converter fit/go well with my 1.6L 200SX SE? It's a 98.. i've got a Stromung.. HotShot headers.. i need an SE-R cat.. need to know if an SE-L cat will do just as well..

Also.. a 93 SE-R cat off an NX and a 92 SE-R cat off a B13.. would they work?

I appreicate your help

Anyone got a response to this..? Please help

Thanks
just go to like ************** or any other place that has good high flow cats and get a universal one im sure a local muffler shop would put it in for about 30-40 bucks better than having a used one

Hey Uni,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it illegal in CA to install a used cat?

No, its illegal to install a non carb or after market converter. You can put a used one on yourself, but I dont think anyshop will install it for you. So in that sence it is illegal.

Ah, ok. All I knew was that junkyards couldn't sell you used cats. Wasn't sure about the install part though.

Well the 98 is different from the 96 as it is a bit longer. Stromung makes 2 different exhausts one for the 98 based cars and another for the 96 97. FIgure out which one you have and buy that year cat. FWIW the GA16 cats from 95-97 are identical to the SE-R cats of the same years as they shared the same exhausts on federal emissions models.
