From looking around I think that most places can get you a high flow cat but the rest would have to be fabbed. If you find somewhere that has those part tell me because I want to do the same thing with mine.

Default Make your own?

I made my own downpipe and full 3" exhaust.

Before I started the project, I had zero welding skills and had never done more than replace a muffler.

I bought some mandrel bends from JC Whitney, cut them and welded them.

I also got an O2 sensor and bung from Summit Racing.

So, I think you'd have to keep the T3 flange you hopefully have already (or get one) and fab the downpipe from that point backward. That's what I did with my Mitsu; I used the flange already in the car, cut it about 1.5" back from where it mounts to the turbo, and used the pre-made bent pipes I'd bought to make the rest of the system.

It was about a 20-hour project for me because it was my first time. I know you could do it if you wanted.
Liquidating my Volvo stuff. Enjoy the Red Dragon, Ken.
