#1 of 6 1997 Tacoma cat converter in CA
May 21, 2009 (4:16 pm)
My catalytic converter was stolen a few days ago. with no damage to sensors.
My neighbor says I can use an aftermarket cat. con. to replace it myself, but will need to fabricate some flanges.
My mechanic says I must use a true Toyota cat. con. as others are illegal and won't work long term and won't pass smog test.
Can anyone tell me what's what with replacing one?
