Where did all you cool cats get your new cats for your 80? Just realized the temp tags for Amber's 80 expire TODAY and probably will need new cats anyway. Thanks...cheap would be good, but quick and easy would be better...

a guy on MUD said he had paid $390 for new Cats at Bud's back in February, but Bud's just quoted me about $600 over the phone...

know were to get 3" high flow magnaflow cats fir $78.00 each. I'm sure they also have 2" & 2.25" & 2.5" available. It will just requier cutting and modifing and welding.

universal cats from summit racing are pretty cheap.

I don't know if the 80 crowd thinks they are acceptable though...

I would buy and have them installed by a reputable exhaust shop if buying local. That way if it fails again due to the NOx being too high you have a backup from the exhaust shop for warranty and or labor. If buying mail order Jeggs or Summit Racing are hard to beat and lightning fast delivery!

Cool, about the same price as Bud's. Think I will just have someone do it for the reasons Kevin gave, and I have *no* time right now to mess with it.

Thanks all!!

You can't go wrong with either place! Both have customers that will never go anywhere else!

...I'll go back to AA for all my exhaust stuff. They are great, honest and friendly. They did the work on my 40 and I'm very happy.

I went to Buds and it was close to what you mentioned. I would rather pay once to someone who knows our vehicles. He (Mike) asked a bunch of questions on the phone which showed he had exeperaince with our rigs.
