Hi guys, Ive purchased a car that has a 2.5" Redback system with extractors and it seems that the Catalytic Convertor has been hollowed out. I'm not happy with the sound or smell of it so whats a decent affordable Cat to suit my system?
How much $$$ am I looking at spending?

if i was you i would be asking whom ever you purchased the car from to front the cost because if he/she has hollowed the cat that is very illegal and libel for a very heavy fine

And the previous owner will most likely say: Lick my balls and shut the door.

Nah its all good, it doesnt bother me at all I was just after an idea of what it would cost. I dont like the way it sounds and it has a strong smell out the back so wanted to change it.
Its not like nobody has ever hollowed out a cat before so doesnt bother me in the slightest.

It's a $2000 fine for having a hollow cat, my wagon had one not long ago, I didn't know, was only when I was fitting a cat back exhaust that I noticed it was hollow..
