Plus stupid check engine light drives me nuts.
I've used Magnaflow cats on my old Mustang and never had any problems. I've also ran into that code before (on a high mileage truck) and replaced the cat and o2 sensors just to make sure I wouldn't have to do the job twice, just to find out that the gas I was buying was setting the code. After all new parts were installed the code would show up only when I stopped at that one gas station, that I don't go to any more.
