Mini-Cat replacement AGAIN, which to buy

So, a little over a year ago I put this:

2000-2002 Jeep Wrangler Catalytic Converter - Eastern - Stainless steel, Direct OE replacement

in to replace my original mini cats. Wouldn't you know it but the thing broke right at a weld, and the catalyst is gone.... eastern is giving me a hard time about the warranty on it as well, go figure.

so, I need a new one, not looking to go with eastern again, but not sure if anyone has had success or problems with any of the aftermarket ones out there.


Catco Front Catalytic Converter Stainless steel

I got a magnaflow not sure if its the exact one you mentioned. But it sounds good and hasnt failed me yet. Made of stainless steel so it holds up. Should last a long time.

I'd go OEM as well. Specially if you are worried about warranty and since its a regulation for you. Me as well, but we dont have emission checks. YES!
