Re: Need a catalytic converter
How many miles are on the vehicle? Any idea why it failed, and are you sure it's bad? There should be two converters, one for each cylinder bank. Is it the passenger side one that you think is bad? If either one has indeed failed, you need to find out why, and fix it first, otherwise you'll end up replacing it again. Cats. should not fail that often, unless they're damaged or overheated.
All that being said, I'd also get some quotes from a few muffler shops for the complete job as, no matter what you buy the converter for, they'll hit you for the install. Some really jack the install price up if you don't buy the converter from them. Also, if you're in doubt as to whether the converter is bad, they can check and verify it for you. IMO, you should be able to find a good quality one, installed, for under $500.
