Replacing California Catalytic converter with non-CA catalytic converter
I have a 2007 mazda 3 hatchback w/ 211k miles and still going. I've been losing lots of oil and since i've changed the PCV valve, i've slowed that process down to about 1 qt every 2000 miles. Anyhow, the oil found its way into the exhaust and i think that killed the catalytic converter. So i'm looking to replace the catalytic converter. Here is my question. The car is a CA car but i've since moved to Texas and I'm wondering if i can replaced the non-CA catalytic converter because they are a bit cheaper? If I replace it w/non-CA cat, will it cause a CEL to come on? I just need the car to last me a bit longer and I don't want to put any more money into it if I can help it. Thanks in advance. Also, it this was already answered somewhere, then I suck at searching, but I did try.
