Catalytic Converter advice
« on: Apr 16, 14, 16:52 »
I have an 02 3.0ltr avant. needs a new catalytic conv. Dealer wants insane amount ($1500 each side). I was told Bosal brand is decent, any one have experience using a non dealer brand(Bosal, Magnaflow, etc...)?

Thx for any input,
Gavin

An aftermarket cat will only last you a few years/certain amount of miles. They simply do not have the quality of a stock converter.
