Hi there. I suggest getting the RV6 Perfomace catalytic converters for your vehicle. Both sets are for your vehicle, however, the RV6 design has a larger pipe and will not restrict the engine during hard acceleration. Also, when replacing the catalytic converters, I recommend replacing the Oxygen sensors for a good reading. If you need further assistance with the catalytic converter replacement, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
