After searching for an hour, I haven't found anything about where to buy new OEM cats. Does anyone know besides the dealer? TIA

They don't give a price. I believe it's $754 or $734/each

Yeah I noticed. I think they gave a number to call them to inquire. I would just go HFC honestly...

I don't need them right now. I was just thinking into the future.

HFCs are illegal in California and that's where I am.

Lol, so are test pipes. That's what I have. So are headers. That's what I have. So are non-OEM colored lights. That's what I have.

Lol



And in the future? Like if one of yours breaks in 100k miles?

Exactly! I'm just afraid of a cop pulling me over and checks out my cats OR if I need to get my car smogged, it will fail the visual test.

Those are the only reasons why I don't want to run HFCs.

But I was thinking... what if I were to run HFCs, but when it comes time for SMOG, I could just swap back the original cats. Hmmm...

Oh and is there a noticeable difference in sound with HFCs? Is it pretty loud or what?

I think you have better odds of getting struck by lightning than a cop looking/knowing about your cats.
