    Unhappy Cracked catalytic converter

    So i walked outside to warm up my car before work and i noticed my exhaust didn't sound right. When i looked underneath i saw the passenger side catalytic converter was cracked open about a 1/2inch near the weld. Should i buy a factory replacement or are there any high flow cats that fit with the stock headers and Y pipe. Also it needs to be something that passes emissions inspection. Any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry if this has been covered before, I'm still a newb and i couldn't find anything with the search option.

    Great hi-flow cats actually.



    How could you see your factory cats with just a quick look?

    '00-'02 stock cats are warranted for 10yrs/120K if found to be defective.

    My 98 V-6 cats were replaced under the same warranty in 2003.
