Hi, my name is Marty. $600 for parts and labor would be a fair price for an aftermarket catalytic converter with flex pipe but a better option would be to take the car to a muffler shop and have the flex pipe replaced without replacing the converter. A decent muffler shop would usually charge less than $200 for this repair.

Let me know if you have any questions.
