Heard its quite a bit but I'm not positive how much. Best bet is to check w/ Minute muffler, midas, speedy, and etc.

A brand new aftermarket stock fit Cat will run u around $120-$130 plus tax. The place where i get it. A NGK brand new 02 sensor from the dealership is like $200-$300. That's a rip off.
