Need Cheap auto exahuast shop... Cat Stolen!

Some Aceholes stole my Cat Convertor from my DD pontiac sunfire.
Does anybody have any reccomendations on a cheap exhaust shop that does decent work.


Looks like a universal replacement cat is 90bucks minimum online. Anybody find them cheaper?

I'm going to make some calls as soon as I have a chance.
Any input helps. Thanks!

Advice. Get a name brand specific application catalytic for your car. Its gonna cost you more to modify the exhaust and install the "universal" one than buying the correct one for your car from a well known manufacturer like DEC, walker or bosal. Make sure it says "OE replacement" or you may have to do modifications to the exhaust which could be pricey depending on the shop you bring it to. Also, if you buy an "OE replacement" you can probably install it yourself if youre not mechanically challenged.

If it is OBD-II (1996 or newer) I definitely wouldnt use a universal cat. Sometimes they will be good enough to pass the car's catalyst efficiency monitor but most of the time they wont and your check engine light will come on. Then you're screwed when it comes time for an emissions test.

I imagine you're going to need more than just the converter. I doubt they were in there with a torch and air tools to remove it clean.

Happened couple of times in my neighborhood. Easy to access (especially under trucks) and OEMs bring good money.

just have the insurance company handle it

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

where have you been!

that has been going on for yrs now. brings in a nice bit of change due to the precise metals in them. heck maybe the shop might even have a "used one" or "refurbished" that will fit your car perfectly Opher1.

i want to drink, but only to kill a certain few brain cells and i don't care how many i have to take out to get to them.

^^^^ Just check for a near-by shop. They might have a "used" or "refurbished" cat that fits perfectly with your missing one. (if you get what Im saying)
