Default Anyone know where I can get some stock cats cheap?

checked classified section and didn't see any. Looked all over online and can't find them. Aftermarket smog legal ones for CA are worth more than gold.

I have a set of magnaflow 49 state legal ones but the ref failed me with them. I'd even be willing to trade my high flow magnaflow cats for some stock ones off a 4.8, 5.3 or 6.0 motor.

Any ideas?

do the magnaflows change the stock location? catco and eastern make a direct repalcement but they are still only 49 state legal, they look like stock though IIRC. if you have someone in another state that you can have them shipped to and then have them shipped to you, you should be alright. or you could buy some used stockers from the for sale section.

i feel ya on the cali smog.......

like $150 for the pair or cheaper. Unless you are interested in some nice Magnaflow cats with only 27 miles on them

Yeah, I suppose I could do $150 for the pair... Let me know. Shoot me a PM if interested. They came off of my last car, 2002 Camaro, only had 17K miles on the car when they came off.

For what its worth..........
I swapped out my 05 GTOs mid-pipes with high flow catted mid-pipes.
I have the factory Mids still with about 10K on em.
iirc, 05 GTO cats are 2 1/4 inlet and 2 1/2 outlet.
Laws in CA are tough.
leme know if i can help out.
