Depending upon your state, which is critical, you may need a converter with a CARB certification number.96 LHS said:The issue with after market converters on these cars is it doesn't always satisfy the sensor and would still fail emmisions.
I think I'm going to get it done. I don;'t want to drive the Challenger in the winter. Or park it in parking lots. LOL.
Great points, I had forgotten about the dual cats. Some states, including CA, have an exemption if the repair will cost over a certain amount. He may be able to get a hardship pass, good for one year.ImperialCrown said:Which converter? There are the left and right ones off the manifolds that have specially formed pipes and possibly one under the car with 2 inlets to single outlet. The fault code may help determine which bank or converter is involved.
The ones off the manifolds would be fairly expensive. Universal converters would still need pipes made and welded to it. Forget about used, I don't think that a yard can legally sell them to you. Look for cats that certify OBD II compliance to pass emissions (except as noted in California).
