    2000 Tacoma, SR5, TRD, 2.7L (LEV), 4wd, 5sp m
    Magnaflow cat and cat-back exhaust, AFE Stage 2 cold-air intake system, 2.5" lift via Skyjacker leaf packs, Bilstein 5100s.
    I'm getting the PO420 CEL that indicates cats operating below spec. I already checked for exhaust leaks (neg) and I replaced the rear O2 sensor several months ago. My taco has two cats, so I guess that means it is a LEV. Looking at the Toyota parts lists, it looks like Toy wants over $600 for each cat. I see a lot of cats on the after market lists for a lot less $$, but they do not specify the LEV.

    Any suggestions as to where I might find the right cats for the LEV and which cat (front or rear) I should replace or whether I need to replace both? Any manufacturer I should stay away from?
