The catalytic converter manifold is dying on one of my vehicles. Just got back from the dealer and they quoted me $2600 for the part alone

I go on online and see that they got them on eBay for $300

My question is if it's worth replacing my home state doesn't have annually car inspections but how will this affect the overall performance of my car

Bruh, Saturday night some crackheads tried to steal the converter off my Boxtruck. I came outside and these clowns was on Jamaican track and field time. Almost lost their lives over $300. I feel sorry for anyone doing stuff like this mother’s.

It has precious metal in it.. So scrap is high. The crazy part is that you can't put a stolen one back on a vehicle.

listen if it gets stolen you have chance to slap aftermarket to by pass emissions. Unless you in cali you fu*ked. Over all I would find way to sue someone sh*t.

A clogged one will reduce performance and fuel efficiency… what ya can do is just cut it off and run just straight pipe. That will actually improve performance.

"I feel sorry for the mother of any one doing stuff like this." is how that sentence should have been written. Your version was a grammatical atrocity.

Do you need an ECU tune or anything like that if you get the straight pipe?

In STL police find piles of them we usually last to get stuff, but these mfs been going H.A.M. these past few years. I almost got one jacked off a car waiting to be serviced. Didn't see it hanging off car until it was towed. That converter had nothing to do with the initial issue.
