Re: My Safari was a victim of a hit and run, what now?

Re: radiator core support needed

I picked up a Flowmaster high flow CAT for it . I couldn't get over the price difference between a cat for 2 3/4" pipes and 3". I got the 3" Flwomaster and two reducers to mate up with the oem pipes for a fraction of the 2 3/4 cats
