    Dead ones! LOL J/K!!!! [​IMG]

    Summit sells high flow Catco's for around $50 ea! That would probably be your best bet.

    The summit ones are great for the money. But the best ones IMHO are the Random Technologies cats. they offer the highest flow rates...But you pay for them.

    If money is the issue, go with Summit.

    Pair? Are you going for visual? Thats going to be illegal, as I guarantee your truck did not have dual cats from the factory, and if an inspector sees that, you will more than likely fail. If its for sniffer only, by all means disregard! : )

    i know that duals were not available on 83's but the first guy i took it to said he would pass it with two cats and i woudlnt have to worry about the other stuff thats missing (i.e.=everything!!!) everyone else just laughed at me. i am going to go to the boneyard and just gut two of em for the visual effect instead of spending the $$ on high flows

    Where in Austin do you live? I'm putting dual's on mine right now(w/ two cats) and I've talked to several places that say as long as it has a cat for each pipe it'll pass
