Hi all. 1st post since my intro on the new members page. I have 2006 2.7 access cab with a salvage title. The CC is junk. Took the down pipe off and dumped it. White insulation and powder came out. It rolls around like a baseball in there. So, after many searches and sites, I only found 1 replacement OEM downpipe from benchmarkhttp://www2.partstrain.com/store/?N=0&PN=5760
Has anyone gone this route or would it be best to cut the cat out and start welding.
I did a lot of reading about the codes that aftermarket cats can cause but the dealer (very helpful) is just way to high. $1700.00 with no labor.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
