    I inquired today about high flow cats for my truck today and the first shop wanted $300 installed for Magnaflow I believe...

    Then I called a shop recommended to me by a co-worker -

    I asked what they run and he said " I wouldnt take your money." Then explained that the stock cats are just as efficient as the aftermarket.

    So it looks like I have $300 bucks to put else where huh?

    I have heard the same thing over and over.. Save your money unless they are clogged.. The factory ones are 3 in and very open..

    I have also been told this too but I bought mine anyways b/c I had to redo the entire exhaust system so I figured why not.

    The factory cats are highflow. I went with 1/4" larger diameter cats and "Y" pipe. It made a differance. It complimented the headers and cat-back.

    stock cats ARE high flow cats..... as long as they are in good condition there is no reason to replace them.
