    Hey!! so i need a new cat on my tc and i was wondering is it worth trying to buy one online? or should i just let the mechanic order one and replace it? if the mechanic does it, its gonna be like over $800 for him to just order one. Please let me know what you guys think i should do or what you would do. Thanks
    The cat is connected to the header, I'm sure u can find a cheaper header offline and or buy a denzo header for 500 and that comes with a high flow cat if not mistaken
    Which CAT is bad, primary or secondary?

    IMO, go aftermarket w/ the CAT, go with a high flow or as the OP said (Dezod).

    As stated, find out which one it is (primary on manifold or secondary on midpipe). For that price, you can buy a brand new OEM manifold and install it in under 30 minutes. They are tearing you a new one for that price. Check ROCKAUTO.COM and you'll find one for around 350$ or less. No need to butcher up your exhaust and add "high flow" CATs, as almost all newer vehicles already have a similar exhaust velocity through the CAT.

    There are two catalytic converters on the car, one on the exhaust manifold and a second one under the car. Yeah we have two of them. Web was explaining that you'll have to find out which one is bad. The one that usually has the issues is the one on the exhaust manifold, others can jump in here and correct me, but that's what I remember. Web is also right, if you do need one ROCKAUTO.COM is the best price/place to get parts from.
    ^Yup, the primary (manifold CAT) is the only one monitored by the emissions system on the car (secondary is post 2nd O2).
