Fully Functional, but no new nuts and bolts?
Magnaflow makes a functional catalytic converter for the 3.4 V6 in my 2000 4Runner. Installation of this part is relatively easy, but would have been even easier if they would have the 4 bolts and six nuts (2 for the O%XB2 sensor). If you have thread files or a tap and die set, then you'll have no problem. Average Joe does not have Snap-on thread files laying around and I still barely got them to thread. Vehicle passed smog and didn't throw a code, so jackpot for me.
Difference between stock and this? i dont see any
good price, its lighter and looks better than stock one, but thats not the reason why we buy an aftermarket converter, in my 2010 accord with K&N intake, resonator delete, and magnaflow muffler, i was expecting more noise and power, also fuel economy, i did not notice any off that, actually made my ride more quiet, YESSS!!! was louder before, so im kind of dissapointed of this product.
