Cat replacement

Apologies if this has already been answered somewhere and I couldn't find it...please direct me if that's the case.

It's a newbie question. My '06 4.7 is registered in Maine but it's stickered under the hood with federal and CA emissions. If I were to replace the stock cats with aftermarkets (Magnaflow OEM grade), would they likely cause a CEL? I ask because Magnaflow does not make CA emissions cats for the 06....just the federal EPA grade ones. Does it make a difference in actual engine performance and computer happiness if the cats aren't CA compliant but the truck is stickered to meet CA emissions?

Hey @MooseMedic ,
If you pick an aftermaket catalytic converter that is nor CARB compliant, you will not get any error codes as long as the oxygen sensor is okay.
Also, it seems quite difficult to find the CARB compliant aftermarket catalytic converter. Here are some of the aftermarket catalytic converters we offer for the 4.7 L Tundra:

Hope that's what you wanted to know.

What are you trying to gain by swapping cats? There are a few topics on here that state there isn't that much difference in swapping out cats.

If your dead set on it you can remove the rear two but for the best bang for your buck would be calling Keith with Dirty Deeds and talk to him. Headers/mid-pipes/cat back exhaust. That alone would would get you 49hp and 89ftlbs of torque.

Just my $.02
