Default Catalytic Converter installed

I just got my Catco Converter installed today. Wow what a difference in the life on this car. Plus it sounds pretty good with that new exhaust I put on last month. Seems to have more power at road speeds and doesn't bog down as easily. When you really get into the throttle you can definately hear that throttle body sucking in the air. Next mod will definately have to be an air intake. I'm loving this car more eveyday.

Where did you get the Catco converter? What did it cost to buy/install?
Why did you replace the old cat?

I bought it off of ebay for 51 bucks and paid another 40 bucks to have it installed. The muffler guy told me that living in wyoming I really didn't need to have a convertor but I told him how I might be moving out of state so I figured a high flow cat would be the best way to go. Nothing was wrong with the old one, but it was really limiting the flow of exhaust compared to the new convertor.
