I'm Jealous. The second CAT should be in next week. I am anxious to get this whole mess behind me.

It finally passed!!!
So here are the numbers after swapping out both Cats.
I am still not happy with the CO number. It seems like that is still a bit high. (I plan on testing the PAIR reed Valve this week)
Any ideas how to drop that number? (I don't want to have to go through this again in 2 years)

Glad to hear that things eventually worked out!

I'm having NOx trouble myself. After the first fail, Toy Car Care suggested new CATs. Quoted me $3,300 for P,L+T. I'm going with Plan B (then C, D, and E) before moving on to full CAT replacement. This thread and some others have been very helpful for those plans.

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)

I was quoted less than $700 for 2 cats installed from A&A Performance Muffler. Toy Car Care has always been waaay high on quotes I've received over the years.

You're up John. When do you want to run yours through?

I am hoping this week. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
