my car is quiet enough after warmed up, that I don't think I'll ever put the stock cat back on.

so ill just throw the stock cat up for sale sense its taking up room. $150 shipped. its heavy and big so im sure it'll take most of that for shipping and handling

comes with the flexpipe gasket and the nuts that go onto the bolts... the primary o2 thread is alittle boogered, maybe into the first thread can easily be cleaned up.

if you need a picture ill send you one. my name is honhon05 on ebay if you need a confirmation that im a good seller/buyer.

Just a suggestion.. try selling this to your local scrap yard. We have guys that come around every week looking for cats/metal etc... they pay very well depending on application

It has a lot of metal and the cat itself has precious metal in it. The look up the cost of a replacement cat and you'll see that they are an arm and a leg new. Dealing in scrap metal these guys can tell a decent ballpark of what the item can be sold for as a replacement unit for a good condition one like his, or they can reclaim the precious metals (platinum, palladium, rhodium, gold), in it and scrap the rest of the exhaust for a little bit more $.

Most cats I do at work an keep I am getting between 100-150. It really depends on application. I know it usually depends on demand. The vehicles with more cat failures will cost the most.

This would be good for someone to snatch up and gut the cat out and have it catless for inspections

Lucky! Here in cali they are super strict. I was thinking how just the gutted stock dp would do but when time to get smog done i would have to switch it

Sorry to go off topic.

Well my local recycling place only gives 5$ and you have to show documents that you bought a new one. I'm going to assume that's from the thieves awhile back when people were stealing cats off new cars right on the new car lot

The metals in the cat are worth more to the scrappers than the part is to most auto shops..
