    advice - my Catalytic sounds like garbage

    my OEM cat on my 04 DC with 109k gave out and i bought the one the muffler shop said was legal and it has ruined my ride...it sound like a tin can rattling (not literally), no CEL, but is there any aftermarket that is cali smog legal or should I just buy a new/used OEM toyota - will that help?

    my truck is so B.A. but the Cat is bumming me out hard.

    Ps Aftermarket Cat For Sale, great deal!
