    Help selecting replacement cats for 2001 Z28

    Hi, I have an '01 Z28 with about 175K miles on it. My SES is throwing codes for bad cats, so I want to take a shot at replacing them. I'm having trouble figuring out what I need. The onlines sites have various models costing between $125 and $1000 each. I found the following on a chain store's website:



    The left and the right options here are quite a bit different in design. If I purchase the smaller $125.99 models, could I get under the car and bolt these things on, or do I have to cut and weld onto the existing pipes (which I will not do myself).

    If I want bolt on, do I have to select the larger, more expensive options with the extended pipes?

    A little confused here, if anyone can clear things up, I'd appreciate it.
