Alright. Well I took the catalytic converter to scrap and got $95 just for the cat. I was shocked!! And now the 4 cylinder sounds like a Subaru. But I wondering if anyone would be interested in my drivetrain. I know I'm not in the classified ad. Eek. But the engine needs a valve cover gasket and should need a oil pan gasket. Both easy fixes. The engines due for an oil change anyways so it will work perfect. The tranny I believe needs the seal that goes the whole way around the transmission, toward the front of the car right in front of the tranny drain plug. I'm guessing that would e the transmission main seal. Dunno. I have interior parts, mainly driver side stuff cause the passenger side is fed up. And a nice trunk!

Is it even legal to sell only catalytic converter to a scrap yard in Pennsylvania? It's illegal to do so in many states, due to thieves cutting cats off of cars and taking them straight to the scrap yards for money.

I kind of understand that... A friend of mine had the cat sawzall'd straight off his 4Runner in front of his house in Berkeley the other year. People are crazy.

Yea tell me about it. Glad I HAD a car that sat low so no one could get under to get it. Plus if someone cuts mine then I'm gonna see if I can be buddy buddy with someone who will let me slide. Cause cars sound better without them anyways
