Cat cost me $220.00. Absolutely the cheapest price anywhere online or anywhere else. It's a place out of Nevada called Lift Kits 4 Less. They're great. They got it directly from MagnaFlow company, and it was Free Shipping. Arrived quick.
Since December 2018 I've been trying to figure out why I couldn't pass smog check. NO level was WAY out of range. Tried everything imaginable and endured 3 different failed smog checks, until this 4th one I passed. Only paid for 2 though, as you get one Free one for every one you pay full price for.
