I'm currently stuck between a rock and a hard place... My CEL is on, and I need to pass emission, so I brought my jeep to the dealer to see whats up. Turns out my cats and O2s are bad. I got a replacement cost of 2200 bucks from the dealer, and close to that from a third party... but that is with using OEM parts. In the name of saving some $$, I've done a little searching, and found Magnaflow has a cat exhaust: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MPE-49046/

I've heard the above cats will keep your CEL off, and allow you to pass emissions. Does anyone else have experience with these, or anything else that would be a less expensive alternative to OEM? Any advice would be appreciated.

Also- past the 80k mark… so warranty is out of the question :mad:

Thanks, and good call. I've gotten a few replies through a WTB post.

Update on emissions- Cleared my code at a tune up shop last night, and drove about 25 miles to get a partial drive cycle in this morining before returing to take an emissions test. CEL stayed off, and I passed- without any repair or new cats. Its just a temporary fix to get through emissions, and I'm still looking for replacement parts, but thought I'd share in case anyone with a similar problem comes over this thread in the future.

Thanks again to all.

The Magnaflow piece will flow better in addition to replacing your cats. I would choose it over a stock replacement if you can afford that route. Also, Magnaflow/ Carsound makes cats for ~$60 each, but a shop will need to weld them in place.
