Just trying to find a decent catalytic converter for my 1998 CRV ! Driving home last night check engine light came on. (Check) Ran the code P0420. I change the cat. about 8 months ago bought a cheapy. I have been reading on line, they recommend nothing but OEM which is around thousand bucks. Is there anything out there that will work, less expensive.

Thanks so much. H4F

Did you replace your O2 sensors at same time ? If not, one of them could throw code. If so, are they Denso? Only the Denso ones seem to function properly from what I've read on the forum. I can't speak to which brand of cat converter would be best as an alternative to OEM one. There's a bolt on Walker that has good reviews on Amazon. I had a small exhaust shop weld on a universal Magnaflow, which also gets good marks on this forum. I also replaced the downstream O2 sensor. Only been 2 months, but all is well.
