Bringing this back up. The OEM head-pipe/cat for the G8 does look a lot like the same part on a Caprice. Kind of an expensive test, though. If anyone has actually laid the G8 headpipe beside a Caprice headpipe, I'd sure like to hear about it. This part would be all I need to complete my X-Force exhaust install.

Well, I figured I'd be the guinea pig here. Since I have an X-Force exhaust to install, and time off coming up, I figured I'd try a pair of these high-flow cats. Installing them with the current exhaust system out of the way made sense, so I figured I'd bite the bullet. When I went to order them, it turns out that Solo Performance is having a 'black-Friday-week' sale at 15% off everything and free shipping. So the cats are on their way at less than $625.

I was already taking off this week, to get some things done around the house/shop, and thought that I just might be able to throw the exhaust under the car while I'm there.

Unfortunately, when I checked my tracking for the cats this morning, I see a posting from this morning that read something like "Oops, we incorrectly routed your package, you may experience some delay in delivery". :x

Okay, I'll configure my new Mac Book Pro, that's actually getting delivered a day early, and work on the SVO to get the cooling system updated instead.

You're not the guinea pig! I did shorty headers (intended to bolt up to stock exhaust) and Solo high flow cats a few years ago. :)

And how was it? Inquiring minds want to know. :D
