5G Catalytic Converter

Can anyone recommend me any specific replacement Prelude catalytic converters?

I have a 2000 Prelude 2.2VTi (H22A8) and there's a hole at the back of the cat, so making a loud noise. The original part number for the cat is 18160-P5P-G10 which has been discontinued. Not the end of the world seeing as the last list price was £998.18 (don't know if that's including or excluding VAT).

There are many alternatives on eBay for about £100 - £200. I see a brand called BM Catalysts and I get the impression they're not bad, so I'm considering this one:

https://www.cats2u.co.uk/honda/7149-hon ... 0784h.html

That one is "type approved" and costs £232.16. Due to the age of my car, I don't think I require a type approved cat, but I assume it would be beneficial at MOT time for emissions. The non-type approved version costs much less at £55.06.

I see Tegiwa selling many Magnaflow high flow sports cats but I'm worried they will make the car a lot noisier which is what I do not want.

Honda dealers would be really expensive or discontinued, as you say.

And I know you want to keep it close to OEM as possible so I think best is to get one from someone who’s breaking their car? Someone with a low mileage or in a good condition.
