Universal vs. Direct Fit Converters - Which Is Right For You?
Here at Hurricane Automotive, we highly recommend you purchase a direct fit converter for your vehicle. How do you know whether you need a direct fit catalytic converter or a universal fit catalytic converter? The major difference between these two types of converters boils down to the following:
Direct Fit Converters:
- Engineered to exactly match the original catalytic converter that came with your vehicle
- Bolt into place without any major modification or welding
- Easier to install than universals
- Limited availability in some vehicles
- May require professional installation
Universal Fit Converters:
- Less expensive than direct fit converters
- Requires more work (to measure and weld)
- Usually requires professional installation
