    I just took my 2010 to have it smogged for DMV renewal & the tech said he failed it for aftermarket cats. I told him I never changed them out & he showed me. After I looked at a picture of the real ones, I believe the previous owner had them changed out, but I never knew because it passed smog when I bought it 2 years ago.

    I am in california & apparently from researching they have the Magnaflow free flowing cats on it now.
    Don't know what to do now. Can not afford to pay the dealer for the oem cats to be installed

    Well that sucks, you kind of have no options.
    Check out Ford Tasca Parts they always have the best prices for OEM parts.

    Also check out the for sale threads and garage sale threads on this forum.

    $1,400 just for the two OEM cat assemblies!

    I haven't found anything cheaper than Tasca parts, yet.

    Find out what your dealer wants for them, and don't be afraid to ask for a loyalty discount or better.

    The OEM Cats are made of the best material out there.
    They have enough flow for my 560 rwhp Whippled Raptor.

    Good idea but he may be in the system that it has after market cats and failed.
