Quick background, I purchased my 99 WS6 without Cats. Previous owner had put a 2.5" ORY on. I had to put cats on to pass emissions. I purchased 2 x Magnaflow 59956 metallic spun cats ($88.00 ea). Installed them yesterday. To be honest, I wish I'd done this right away when i first bought the car. Adding the cats seems to have eliminated a lot of the drone i was experiencing and my car no longer stinks like an old snowmobile anymore. If there is any loss of performance, i can't tell. I'm super happy with the turnout.

Next for me is to install my 4" Corsa Clones that I bought. :D

I totally forgot to take pic's. That was an oversight on my part. I will take some when i put my tips on.

The drivers side one i mounted about 3-4" down from the manifold connection and the pass side i put just before the Y by the mounting hanger. It tucked up in there nicely under the pass floorboard. I think my clearance is actually better now as i was able to move the drivers side pipe around a little better after i cut into it and was able to get the pipe nice and tight to the bottom of the car.

Does it hit the floor panel when you go at WOT???

No, not at all. I've tried various times. No issues.
