OK, just had a talk with "Dave" a tech at Magnaflow, he said that PN #49760 would be a direct fit for anyone using the Magnaflow catback PN #16533.
He informed me that he needed to talk with his engineers about it actually working for are needs. His two concerns were, 1) Are the to new cats in the #49760 to far down stream to be effective? 2) Is the concentration of precious metals the same or as high as they are in the "header cats" that Magnaflow makes.
