Guys any of you used universal catalytic converters as a replacement of factory ones? I need take care of mines, but I wouldn't want spend over $600 for aftermarket direct fit. I'm thinking to get these Eastern Mfg 92214 , but I got one concern, is the ECO III norm, good enough for Subaru 3.6 H6 engine?

I got P0420 and soon I will get P0430 as you can see on the graph below, taken during normal driving.
To keep MIL away I've installed sleeve/spacer under rear O2 sensors, but some times I'm getting P0140 and P0160.

I don't think the US can answer for a EU version of the tribeca. Hopefully Poland has a similar labeling system under the hood as in the US. We have a VECI sticker that explains what cat you need to replace it with. Explained here:

It looks I don't have this VECI sticker. All Tribeca's are made in USA, so I'm pretty sure the exhaust setup in US and EU versions are the same. Let say I have EPA standard in mine Tribeca, so that would be equivalent to ECO III?

If it isn't as efficient as the stock one you may have an issue with the CEL for a bad converter.

If I would know this, I would't ask about ECO III and compatibility with Ttribeca.
I used to have 2005 Pacifica with 3.5l engine and had pretty the same problem with cat, I've replaced factory one with Eastern 82626 which is ECO II and for over a year had no problem with cat until I've sold this car.

Like I've mentioned before I have something similar installed, but from time to time I'm getting P0140 and P0160. Maybe mine spacers are too long and this is the reason I'm getting those codes.
