SVT Cat. Converter

I was going to order a HFC from C-F_M , but there on back order. My stock cat is fine. I wanted the high flow, not only for performance, but to preserve my stock cat. The stock SVT cat, use to be like $250 now its $2000!. Someone at Ford needs to go to Jail (no "bail-outs allowed). If the HCF failed smog the "repair" would be the re-installaton of my stock cat.
Another thing we can do is keep a "Community Stock SVT CAT" and ship it around to each other when our Smog test are due. In between inspectons, we can all drive around with ORP s...there in stock
