Smile Which HFC for a TT or SC Build

Hello my dear, supercharged and TT 370Z owners.

I have not found a proper thread where was accurately described,
catalyst which is best suited for the extra power in a more boost Nissan 370Z?

My problem is that the original catalysts for 5000 km already given up the ghost and the new Fast Intentions 300 cells catalysts also already broken after 10000 Km (loose in housing) are.

What catalysts can you recommend me for the extra power 500 HP?
What are you going and you have no problems so far?

Thanks for the answers and a dear Greetings from Switzerland
Ivo

We have a customer rocking the Berk Technology HFC. They are a well built product that have great flow. You can see some more info from Berk HERE. I recommend giving them a shot as they have great build quality and additional bracing to prevent cracking seen by some of the other manufactures.

Thanks,

The usual catalysts are operating normally.
We in Europe have very specific catalysts since 2010 (Euro 5)

The elderly would probably hold for a while....

Please report your best upgrades

I dont know about others, i just remember doing the research when I went to purchase mine.. To be honest with you, Fast Intentions is really good with customer service. If i were you, I would go and talk to Tony about the issue...
I stand by Fast Intentions products and service myself...

You are going to continue to have problems with HFC's and forced induction. They aren't up to the increased pressure and temperature.

Fast Intentions has an option for their exhaust that puts a high flow cat further down the exhaust. This way it stays a bit cooler.
