Lost ours last year. $1150 to replace it. Then I painted it with red VHT header paint, ran 3/16” steel cable through its heat shield and through the frame and secured it. I then had my muffler shop weld rebar from the cat. converter to other parts of the exhaust system. Initially bought a CatClamp, but did this instead.
