Default GROUP BUY: Solo Performance EcoBoost High Flow Converter Assembly

SOLO Performance F150 Ecoboost High Flow Cats
Application:
Ford F150 V6 Twin Turbo Ecoboost 2011–Present

All of us at Solo Performance are proud to announce that we have our 2011–Present Ford F150 V6 Twin Turbo Ultra High Flow Converters, tested and ready for sale. These are a full stainless steel converter/resonator assembly that has all stainless welds, O2 bungs, flanges, etc. We have two test trucks (Thanks so much again Boostedfitz, for your time and efforts!!!) out there that all have over 500 miles on them with no engine light issues. It’s so important to thoroughly test these High Flow Converters on multiple vehicles and we appreciate your interest and patience during this phase. Having said this we can’t be completely sure until there are 10 or so units out there with no issues.

Solo is the only company that we know of that incorporates a resonator into a converter assembly when necessary. A by-product of the restrictive nature of the “stock” Ecoboost converters is quietness. When we took the restriction away and opened up the converters with our Solo High Flows the noise became unbearable. We inserted a 3 inch free flow Solo Mach-Resonator at the rear of the assembly and the exhaust note changed from “horrible” to an “8 Cylinder Symphony.” With the addition of the Solo High Flow Cats, your current exhaust note increases in volume by approximately 2 DB and the note deepens, richens, and becomes more full and rounded. The throttle response is greatly improved with the Solo Performance Ecoboost Cats, and our customers have commented on feeling the difference in HP (horse power) and torque from the first drive. The piping is all 3” mandrel bent stainless steel and much care and consideration has been given to not only the “path of the exhaust” but the “transition intersection” as well.

2011-Present F150 V6 Ecoboost Solo High Flow Converter Specs:
  • 200 cell stainless steel spiral wound design. This design is long lasting, ultra-high flow, and completely stainless inside and out.
  • Converters are far overrated for the truck, at 6.0L per side. That’s 12.0L of cleaning ability.
  • 3” mandrel bent stainless steel pipes ( except the first few inches that are 2 ” due to the manifolds )
  • Includes a special design stainless steel 3/8” thick front flange. A special spacer ring has also been incorporated to allow for the Ford shouldered studs coming out of the manifold.
  • All pipes, O2 bungs, resonator, and welds are stainless steel.
  • For sound reasons we had to incorporate a 3” free flow resonator behind the converters. With the addition of the free flow resonator we now have great sound (2 DB louder) and performance.
  • These converters are not CARB certified but they do pass all emissions and keep the CEL light off. They are technically for off road use only.
  • Oxygen Sensor Extenders are included for the two rear O2 bungs. These extenders contribute to the elimination of the engine light.
  • No CEL or engine lights to date!
  • 100% BOLT ON!
  • Stock Weight is 42 pounds and the Solo High Flow Converter weight is 21 pounds.

Retail Price: $748.75 including shipping to most of the U.S.A. and Canada.

GROUP BUY Details:

For every person that buys a set of these converters until the end of September 2012, there will be a 1% discount up to a maximum of 15% discount. You would pay the full price up front, the product would ship immediately, and a refund check will be issued to you once we hit the maximum 15% or at the end of the group buy. This group buy is combined with the off-road converter assembly group buy!

What makes this Solo Performance converter assembly different:
  • 3” stainless steel mandrel bent piping
  • 3” free flow stainless steel resonator is used
  • Each converter is sprayed to 6.0L with platinum, palladium and rhodium.
  • 12.0L of converter cleaning ability is far overrated for the truck and key to keeping the engine light out.
  • A high heat braze is used on each wind of the spiral wound converter. This costly measure ensures the converter won’t detach from itself.
  • Oxygen sensor extenders are included for the rear O2 bungs to further ensure that the engine light stays out.
  • Very smooth exhaust path and transition at the Y.

Would love to but that price is more than the cat back MR400 system. A little to steep for me...

Anything with cats in it is going to be expensive. Just how it is. Nice to see these released Solo, any performance dyno done to show before and after?

Can you put up a clip of this setup? (with cats) and include what type of catback it is running with it.

Are there 02 emulators available? Or can the back 02s be turned off with a tuner.

Very nice setup.

This si one of those situations where you get what you pay for...these cats have a specially coated interior substrate to filter off harmful gases, and are specially wound to make sure they do not break apart. They are also a full stainless steel converter and are as high flowing as possible without going to a catless setup. NO CEL as well.

We have not dyno'd them to our knowledge, but they are MUCH more free flowing than stock and the gains can be surely be felt...just ask our testers. Dyno results often also cause controversy and arguments, and we do not want that.

We are hoping one of our testers could post some video.

It will come with everything needed to keep it CEL free

Quick question, same price for the both versions? Offroad with no cats isn't cheaper?
