Check the book, no VS listed, phoned the suppliers who said that they can't just supply the cat due to the design but have to supply the whole exhaust. How much?
1500.00 was the lowest price 1500.00
He said he will call me back on Monday when he can speak to some other suppliers but has anybody else heared of not being able to buy a catalytic converter and should it of gone in 3yrs and 2 mths?
What do you think?
