As I near completion on my 4.3L swap, the next big step is the exhaust work. I've already selected a Flowmaster Delta Flow muffler, but need to get a cat.
I talked with Random Tech today and (while nice) I am not paying $200.00 for a cat.
So, anyone have any good sources for reasonable aftermarket cats? I am looking a cat with 2.25" inlet/outlet, no air tube, shorter is better. Is something like the cats sold by JC Whitney sufficent?
i have a random tech cat and love it! it was well worth the extra money spent. i installed it april 2000 and it still looks great even after the winter and salt (indianapolis). i may be able to get you a deal on a random tech cat. if you can give me a part # i will see what i can do. email me at [email protected]. matt
where I have tried to document the swap. It wasn't that hard. I used a '94 Vortec, which is still ODB-I, so only one O2 sensor, and it has minimal (one)
vacum line. I did a lot more to the jeep during this swap so the time I've spent hasn't been strictly on the swap. Indexing the TC, all new brake lines,
new prop valve and MC, finally! have the front end the same color as the tub, etc. etc.
My problem with carparts and wrenchhead is that if you are looking for NON-STOCK parts, forget it. The site just S$#@#S[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img].
I think at this point the only original major parts on my CJ7 are the frame
and the steering column. Almost everything else has been changed/replaced and
much if it is not stock (like most modified jeeps...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]) so I find the above sites pretty useless.
