<5KCSTQ> Underneath stuff

While under the car today replacing that durned top behind the cat exhaust
bolt, I noticed a few things...

1) My driver's side transmission arm to subframe mount is in pretty rotted
shape. Anyone have the PN, cost info? (Sorry, Eric - don't have enough
qewsas just yet...)

2) My cat has either been replaced, or had the 4 inch cat to flange pipe
replaced. They did a crummy weld job, and the pipe is visibly smaller than
the downpipe or outlet.  Has anyone tried on of these hi flow cats yet? Cost?

3) The factory exhaust has a flat spot under the ujoint - virtually halves
the exhaust pipe for 8 inches.

Obviously, 2) and 3) are serious restrictions to turbo happiness! For the
flat spot, when running new pipe, do we go a different route?
