Catalytic converters for my Workhorse W22?

One of my converters is starting to break down and it's time to be replaced. Has anyone used any of the Magnaflow models and if so which one? What about any other manufacturers? 48 state or California compliant? I probably won't get to CA. Mostly East coast and mid-west. Thanks much. Tom.

Tom, Call Jon Brazel at Brazels RV Performance and he will let you know what part number CAT you need.

Thanks Driver. I decided to give the Catco 312007 a try. 3 inch inlet/outlet. CA compliant. $97.50 each online. I will keep Brazel's in mind for future needs.

Send a message via ICQ to Fred and Bonnie
Is it possible that they are still in the emissions warranty period?

The cat on the passenger started to make a jingling sound from inside at idle. I thought perhaps I shed part of the manifold or a flange. I took down the pipe and shook it and the entire honeycomb is loose. Flanges and manifold appear to be in good shape. I am replacing the driver side as I am sure it is not far behind. The chassis has less than 10k miles on it. I thought the cats would last longer. I bought the unit used last Fall, a '05 Kountry Star, third owner. Extended warranty does not cover exhaust components.

That may be true, but FRED'S suggestion was for you to see if the Workhorse EMISSIONS warranty might cover it. I believe the WEW is for longer than the "regular" 36mo / 36,000 miles warranty. We're just trying to be helpful.

catalytic converter or muffler? Don't think you can buy a catalytic converter for $97.

Emission Control devices are covered for a period of 5 years or 50,000 miles.

Dealer cost on a Workhorse Catalytic Converter is over $800.00 each. Back in 2003, I was involved in the CAT recall. I got a pair of new ones and the kit wasn't very fancy at all. Just 2 CATs and some bolts.

Although I did not ask the question, I would bet that you can't buy a Workhorse muffler for any less than $300.00 each I bet.
