Cats may have nine lives, but your stock catalytic converter only has one. When it's kicked the bucket, steer clear of costly dealerships and pick up a a 49-State Eastern Catalytic Direct-Fit Catalytic Converter instead.
With over 30 years of catalytic converter-building experience under their belts, Eastern Catalytic knows that outrageous prices do not equal better performance. Every Eastern Catalytic Converter is expertly engineered with a proprietary blend of catalyst that scrubs away toxins without creating an exhaust flow bottleneck. Your fumes flow right through for maximum performance that's Mother Nature approved, too.
Best of all, you don't have to be a certified welder to install a Direct-Fit Eastern Catalytic Converter. Built to factory specs, they simply bolt in place of your stock cat. Plus, Eastern Catalytic uses only the toughest metals to construct your cat—T-409 stainless for the housing and aluminized steel for any piping. To top it off, Eastern stands behind your catalytic converter with a 5-year/50,000-mile warranty.

While this is a bolt-in item it is not a single piece. There is a slip joint in the exhaust pipe that must be sealed somehow. Both front and back exhaust seal rings did not seal and they looked to be the wrong sizes. Now I have to take it all to a shop to have them try to fix it which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place.

My 08 pontiac g6 had the same problem as a lot of cars from GM around that production time, the honeycombs in the stock cats were melting. I replaced both cats with these easterns and at 175k miles my car drives like it's new again. My exhaust breathes better, I would recommend buying eastern cats!

So, this was a fantastic price for a replacement system. Unfortunately, it was incomplete and didn't exactly fit. It comes in three section that are held together by two U-bolts. It came with one. The manifold gasket was about 1/8" too small in diameter to mount. So I ended up using the old one... now I have an exhaust leak... Last thing, I wasn't able to use the spring manifold bolts to attach the cat portion to the manifold, they are way too short, they need to be 1" longer.

I was pleased on how well it was to install your product, it fit perfectly and I had everything to make the switch from my old one to the new one. And it took simple tools to get the job done, and better yet it was a good value too, Thank you, Nick
