Default Need new cats - 96 80 series

I know, AA, Bud's, and Boulder are the recommended shops.

I know there are some DIY success with replacing their two cats.

Has anyone had DIY success with, cut the old ones off, put two new ones in there that can be clamped on? (not Magnaflow Y pipe with first cat)

You need two of them for visual, but many have gutted one and installed one new one with success passing emissions.

Paul, thanks, yeah, I'll just go with two and be done with it for the future.

I like your signature, in town (Boulder) I sometimes park in the "Hybrid" spots. A lady asked me one time, I said, yes it's a hybrid, runs on fuel and air. She said, "that's pretty cool!"

That's hysterical...fuel and air

I do believe someone did a calculation on what it takes to build a new vehicle in a factory. My gas guzzler, could probably run another 100 years (especially on the cheaper gas now) and never catch up to the carbon emissions of producing a new vehicle. So, in "keeping it green" I am actually doing better for the environment than the Prius...not even considering the rare earth metals that have to be raped from the earth for all those batteries

Edit: Technically, my vehicle is not "recycled" but maybe more accurately "Re-Purposed"!!!!

Yesterday I had new cat's put in my (new to me) 1994 FJ80 by AA Performance along with new O2 sensor bung's, a new muffler hanger and a few other small repairs to the exhaust system. The cost of $742 was inline with my budget and hopefully will get me through my second attempt to pass CO emissions. Several recommendations here on the forum prompted me to take the rig to them for an estimate and they were able to complete the work the same day. Good people and fair pricing along with great work.

Guess I will call AA or Bud's.

Just got back from Boulder Muffler.

They will only put CA Cats on my 96, say based on their experience, all the other aftermarkets won't lower NOX enough. I don't have a reason to disagree and am okay with the extra help on the NOX.

$800 to replace the 2 cats, no other work involved.

I would get a quote from AA. I had both cats replaced a few years back, and it passes emissions with room to spare now.
