RV6 Performance produces these fantastic Primary/Pre- Converter Deletes (PCDs) for the 2nd Generation of J-series engines (ones with the 2-port outlet on the cylinder head). These parts are completely designed using 3D CAD and CMM, the transitions from the head to the pipe and from the pipe to the j-pipe are made from precision cast 304 stainless steel. This allows for optimum turbulence free flow with no sacrifice in strength. The castings are thicker than 5mm at their thinnest point. RV6 is confident that these cast sections can handle any abuse without cracking.

RV6 PCDs increase power by completely removing restriction from exhaust. The tradeoff of this wide-open performance is there will be increase sound from the exhaust, which can sometimes add a raspy tone. Additionally, the smell and soot out of the tailpipe will increase as well.

In higher horsepower or high performance applications it is recommended that users buy the PCD, or Pre-Cat Delete kit because the metal converter cores in the HFPCs can deteriorate prematurely due to their close placement to the engine.

- 304 Stainless cast stainless flange sections.
- 304 Stainless steel tubes 
- TIG welded

All two converter replacement sections and necessary hardware for installation, including gaskets, brackets, and defoulers were needed.

Customer Questions


I want to do from the header all the way back . Do you have a header that fits to the j-pipe, then exhaust?


Your vehicle is not be equipped with traditional "headers." Before going further, we would suggest reading this article regarding the exhaust layout on your J-Series Engine equipped vehicle: An Outline Of The Exhaust Layout On J-Series Honda V6 Engines

We can provide a complete set of exhaust components from the engine to the tips, and will be happy to consult you on the needed items.


Is this a direct fit on a stock j pipe or is it only for the RV6 set up? Also what do u mean by "off-road use only"?


Yes, these cat deletes are a direct bolt on and will work with any bolt-on j-pipe, including those from XLR8 or ATLP.

Removing functioning catalytic converters from cars is not legal, and so if you are going to but and install these parts the expectation is that you would not be using the car on public roads.


Will this give me a check engine light?


It should not, no. However due to the nature of the part deleting a converter, and the car's computer having provisions to check for such a thing, it is not impossible that one will come on at some point. If it does, please contact us for more info.


Are 02 bung 90's that come with this the defoulers or just an extension for clearance?


They are defoulers, and they are angled for clearance. So the answer to your question is: Both!


Will this mess with emissions in California?


This part is not legal for road use in any state, including California.


Will this bolt on to the xlr8 j pipes


Yes, the XLR8 j-pipe, as well as any other J-pipe we offer, will bolt up to RV6's PCDs and HFPCs.

Q:If I do the RV6 V3 Race J-pipe with these cat deletes and keep my Type-S exhaust after the V3, will i notice any difference in performance and if so what HP and TQ gains?

Yes you will! Cat deletes and j-pipe changes will change the performance of your car even with a stock exhaust. Numbers are hard to quote but the car will accelerate faster.

  • Blown Away By Product Quality and Customer Service August, 27
    By Blake Harms, Street Performance Enthusiast
    I am a pretty tough crowd to please...But RV6 knocked it out of the park with these PCD's! The quality is amazing and you can tell RV6 uses a Jig to ensure perfect fitment! I am quite the perfectionist when it comes to my car and quality parts, these really are impressive. Supplied with OE gaskets, new hardware and high temp anti-seize! Not only was the shipping time very reasonable, Marcus from HeeltoeAuto kept me calm and tuned in through the entire process. I have been in the customer service industry, let me tell you with faith that HeeltoeAuto will take care of you! A+ from a happy repeat customer!
