Default Hi flow Cat Costs

just wondering what should i be looking to pay for a hi flow cat? right now for a direct fit i've been finding them for a little over $300.00. And is it better to get a direct fit as opposed to a universal? let me kno what you guys think.

Call them and see of the 602546 is the replacement for the Goerlich 608227.

The 608277 might accept 3" in and out.

If you're going to go 3" down tube to cat, 3" out of cat to??? Yes. I opened my exhaust to 3" all the way to the "Y" and then went two 2" to Magnaflows.
