I got the Cats and during installation realized the dual-threaded mounting bolts require the user to install the bolts, I'm guessing to avoid damage to the bolt or threads during shipping. Ok, not a problem, then I realized only one of the four Cats had all of the proper hardware included. One Cat was missing one bolt that I had to salvage by wrenching an old bolt from the factory Cat using Vise-Grips and a second person to hold. The back two cats came with NO hardware, just the Cats themselves, so I had to bum a ride to the local hardware store to find some hardware that would work for those. During this headache I also took advantage of the situation and installed a pair of shorty headers. The end result was well worth the headache. My MPG's have increased substantially (still calculating the exact numbers but well over 3mpgs) and horsepower is more readily available and without hesitation.
