    One of my cats is bad...

    I went to AutoZone and used there OBDII and the code is that one of my cats is bad...will this screw up my car to keep driving it like this? it runs great right now so i don't know. Also, what kind of high-flow cats do you suggest? Thanks.

    P0420 or P0430? Stock cats are covered under the federal emissions warranty for 80K.

    Edit: Heard California might be different, doublecheck.

    P0420...but i hear you can eliminate the cats with some setups, right? Mine is a daily driver so should i just get high flow cats?

    In Florida we can do anything we want, no emissions tests - California is different, think LTs might even be outlawed...visual inspections? Need to check locally.

    Says in your sig you only have 58,000 miles...so yes you are covered under the federal emissions warranty until 70,000 miles in a CA build car.

    Leave the code in and bring it to the dealer...they'll replace both cats for free.

    Shouldn't matter. I edited my earlier post cause I heard California might be different - but it's an 8year/80K FEDERAL emissions warranty - shoot, you'd think it would be 100K there...don't understand why it would be different.
