SVT Catalytic Converter - Source for Reman or Perf Replacement needed.

I have had my SVT parked for 2 years now as I havent been able to source either a remaned Stock Cat or an aftermarkent unit that is bolt on.

My last attempt earlier this summer had me contact CFM but I had no luck.

Are there any other sources for what I am looking for that will allow me to avoid Fords replacement cost of $2500. (what are they smoking?)

I have searched this forum prior to joining and again today but seem to run accross sources that are no longer valid.

Thanks in advance. Mark

man, 2 years. i would have found a muffler shop and had an aftermarket cat welded on or bought the ORP. we dont have emissions testing down here where i live so the ORP may be unusable for you. even if you had to have it towed to a shop, that plus the labor and parts would be far less than the ford cost, thought might be you can find one through tousley ford, they offer quite a discount on OEM parts.

Thanks - I would but since you cant see straight through this thing I'd be concerned about this having blockage like my current one does.

I shot a question to CFM on their cat. We will see if we can get the interest going here. It was easier to leave it parked as I bought a Solstice GXP coupe for the street and have been busy with some racecar projects. However anytime I did any research for a purchase I ended up with nothing but dead ends. Its been easier to source goodies for the 64 Falcon.

Talk to me about a source for an ORP. When you say that your just talking about making a generic Cat fit the purpose and adding the bungs for an aft for the 02 sensors?

Thanks Mark

If you're thinking about going ORP, then why not just hollow out your blocked up cat?

It will keep a stock look for maximum stealth...

I don't see why a local exhaust shop couldn't figure something out for you. I would think they could just bend up the pipe and weld the bungs, flanges and cat in the appropriate locations, which I think is what afgray was trying to say.
