08 Civic Cat Replacement


New Member
Hello All,
My check engine light came on on my 2008 Honda Civic ex 1.8. I had them run the code reader and they said it was the catalytic converter. I tried Cat clean the check engine light came back on so now I’m looking at just replacing the cat. All the surrounding stores have them for around $400, but online they are as low as $200 bucks they are direct fit. I don’t care if it fails later cause the car has 276k miles on it. My main concern is getting it to pass the emissions test in the state of Georgia so I can renew the tag. Have any of you guys used one of those cheap catalytic converters and had any problems with the check engine light coming back on?
