about the cheapest place to find them is to go to Ebay and search for a Magnaflow or Carsound hi-flow or something along those lines, theyre between 55 and 60 dollars, and like BillBoost said, youll need the 2.5 in and out.

Unless you have a welder and are good with it I suggest you make an appointment with the exhaust shop.

Also, do not let them charge you more than $25 for the install as it should be a 15 minute job.

Good luck.

25 dollars thats all it should cost? Even if they haveto extend the exhaust pipe because the new cat is smaller? If i find out there is a leak and it doesnt haveto do with the cat should i have them fix it?

I had a complete cat-back exhaust and tip welded for $20 at a local muffler shop. It took them 10 minutes. Those guys usually know what they are doing and have all the tools to do it. Well worth it.

If you've never used any of your local shops, call around first and ask how much to cut and weld in your new cat. Often you'll get your best price over the phone, IMO.
