Factory genuine converters are pretty pricey so it's kind of common that it happens. But I'm sorry to hear that, man. Well, if you just want to pass the inspection in a cost-effective way, you can get an aftermarket cat converter like Magnaflow's or something. Aftermarket cat converters are usually 40% - 60% cheaper than OEM's but they tend to give you the engine codes relatively sooner than OEM's.


Car's at the shop for the cat converter & the A/C compressor replacement atm. Fuel pump might be due to the mileage of the car, (generally 'till 150K mi) but was told they're still good. Will get more insights when it's completed.

Modified the OP by breaking down the maintenance log into a few sections so I can keep track of my lists more clearly to determine what is coming up.
