Default Need front car Y-pipe. 2000 3.0 XLT

Hello all. I posted this under the classifieds already but figured I would post it here as well.

I have a 2000 XLT Stepside. 4WD 3.0L Gas engine.

My front catalytic converter split in half just before the passenger side front cat. (I will post pictures tomorrow as it is 10pm here now) I am looking to buy a used front cat assembally (the whole Y pipe) and I cannot find used ones on the internet for the life of me. New ones are $280 plus (I've seen some for $450 and that's just damn ridiculous) and I refuse to spend that much. Does anyone have a used front catalytic converter Y pipe that I can buy? Can be in any condition, just as long as it ain't gonna split on me again xD

-Camden

With all the jobs you claim you have, I can't possibly understand not having enough money for a new part.
Buying a used cat converter is hilarious.
If money is that tight, Walmart is always hiring.

Private EMS pays $12.75 an hour.
My part time department only pays when on a call. Usually make about $80 a week from the department. (Its $20 a call)
Part time dispatching is part of my private EMS company. Its $19 an hour and I work a 7p-7a Saturday nights in dispatch.
So working Tuesdays at the fire department 6p-6a, a Wednesday 7a-5p private EMS. A Thursday 24 hour 7a-7a private EMS and a Saturday 24 hour private EMS (with 12 hours in dispatch) I work over 60 hours a week.

I make a little over $550 after taxes from private EMS. My fire department check varies but like I said on a good week it's an extra $80

by some chance did you swing by an exhaust shop and get an estimate? they can usually cut out the old and weld a new in for a couple hundred bucks if that
