Any body in NY have that changed? What did that cost$.
I checked on it recently just in case my PT needed one. A genuine MOPAR catalytic, which is a direct fit, is about $1200 plus a $200 core charge, plus the labor to have it installed or you can do it yourself.

Some auto parts store sell universal mount (welded in place) or direct fit which will bolt in like the MOPAR unit, for about $400 or less.

The only issue would be the performance of an after-market vs. MOPAR catalytic. I've never had a catalytic replaced on any vehicle that I've owned, so I don't know about the performance of any non-MOPAR catalytic.

Is it because of some emissions regulations? Try some other auto parts places.

I would wait until I got a better diagnosis than relying on Autozone to replace anything major like a catalytic converter.

Just tried to put my plugs in , and was almost done, and I thought I dropped a bolt, out of the throttle body, so I spent the last half hour of daylight looking for a bolt on the ground, sliding a magnet all over the place.,
So I gave up, and picked up all my stuff, just before I closed the hood, I looked for the last bolt, so I could go get a new one tomorrow, and I looked at the throttle body
And there was a bolt in the hole, that my socket slipped off of., it never fell out!.
I just checked the gap on my old plugs 2 were .058
1 was .065, and the other .055. Champion re16mc

I'm using the Champion RE14MCC5 (470) Copper Plus Spark Plugs in my '05 Turbo lite gapped at .042. So far runs great at that setting. The gap on yours sounds way too big.

I've found if you drop a bolt or nut under the hood of a PT it gets sucked into a black hole somewhere but will never fall through to the ground.
