Need a Scrap OEM 7.3 Catalytic Converter!

So I'm really hoping someone can help me out here. I have a f350 4x4 7.3 which I installed a magnaflow exhaust on. I deleted the Cat because it was legal back then but now California in their brilliance changed the rules and now my truck wont pass smog . If there's anyone who can help me out with a scrap OEM converter please let me know!

Junk yard should be helpful. There is a guy in CA that punched out the cat, then ran his exhaust through it. Made for a nice dummy cat. But, before you go through all of that work, double check your stickers to see if it started life as an emissions vehicle. You may get lucky and not need a cat after all.

I got popped at the smog check and did some research and my truck is a late '98 which came with the factory cat. The junkyards round here don't sell them and you're right all I need is the shell to pass the visual.

I'm in the SF bay area. I've been keeping my eyes open up here but I'll have to check down south.

I **** you not, I still have mine. Its in my race trailer right now. PM me if you want it, throw me a couple bucks and pay for shipping and its yours. It'll be a few days before I could get it shipped (as I'm 400 miles from home for work right now), but I can make it happen as soon as I get home.

Edit - Its from an '01, but it should be the same size I'd imagine...
