Don't bother with NRP from RN. All things considered, stainless up forward is gilding the lilly. Mild steel holds up just fine. Cats back, stainless is a good option. Stock is OK.

JimC's y-pipe is welded to the center section so you would have to redo the flange.

If it were me, I would just take off the y-pipe, hit it with a hammer to get the loose chunks out of the cats, and call it a day. My LWB has like no cats left (nothing I did, they just puked themselves out the back of the exhaust) and it runs great.

If you want one of the weirdest experiences in your life you can bring it out to the boys by Citi field. They welded new cats into my y-pipe. They only take cash and they beg to work on your truck so you can get a good price.

But I am warning you it is the most bizarre place I have ever been. Its like a 3rd world nation, Mad Max & Labyrinth all mixed into one.

Good advice guys! Thanks for the offer JimC. I'm going to puss out and go with a stock set-up from AB. New Y and O2's shipped is just under $1K. I've got to get through emmissions next month so I'm going to bite the bullet.

You could also go with headman headers from summit for $150 and and have the flanges and new cats welded in. I think I got out the door with headers, new cats and o2 sensors for around $800.

I would have yours repaired or get an NRP one... I have the NRP on both trucks and it has been great.

Will the Headman Headers fit? I was under the impression that something had to be modified in order to fit these in the D90's...

Let's see -
Headers $150
O2s $100
Cats $250
Labor $300
I think that is how it worked out. Just make sure that try to tuck the cats up on the passenger's side so it doesn't hand below the crossmember leaving it exposed to a potential hit from the underside. I might be a bit off on the O2s, labor and cats price but I know overall it came out to around $800.
Hope that helps.
Clay

Hey Thanks Clay!

Scott, what's sort of difference are you experiencing with the NRP cat/y-pipe? Performance?
