Default Any recommendations on a new Cat Converter?

Hey there, need to replace the Catalytic Converter, any thoughts on what I should be looking for? I've been finding some in the 140-180 range in general. I know I want a direct fit as well.

Moose..when I tried to buy a direct fit on my 95 ... even the parts stores didn't have it.

Ebay is probably the best price. Say a magnaflow for the size piping you need... like a 941XX series.

Then be busy fetching the beer and make Bob put it on.

I was..spent the money and had no change, except a slightly louder exhaust. Apparently mine was working good.

It may be me but if you don't have an 02 sensor after the cat, then why not just leave it out? maybe? Just my opinion.............

What did you do with your old one Bill?

Also Catco make a decent hi-flo cat and the universal is under $75.

Yeah, but the universals end up having to be welded in after the flange is cut off the stock down pipe. This isn't the cheapest or best way to go unless you do all your own welding work, IMO.
