Thanks in advance!
I may ask Treeroot if he wants to get together and make some youtube videos on how to troubleshoot each of the components involved.
I would check the EGR, EGR vacuum module and VSV before putting on cats.
All three are pretty straight forward to test and a lot cheaper than cats.

Do you have a green top or blue top EGC vacuum modulator? (The green tops have a filter that can get plugged)

3300 for cats seems very high. There isn't much to swapping them out. I ordered 2 from CruiserDan and it only took a couple of hours to swap them out.
(I had to cut off all of the bolts with a sawsall)
