Cat converter on a '99 PSD?

I just got my truck rejected for no cat. I didn't know diesels came with a converter. Any recommendations on a 'high flow' unit?

My personal recommendations are Magnaflow and Catco. I've used them both and have very good success with them. I can't speak for other brands because I have used Catco's up until the newest exhaust - which is now Magnaflows. Summit sells them both, but I am sure there is a local shop that has them also.

You may need to do a little more research on this one. Many NBS powerstrokes didn't come with a cat. I priced one for my 97, $1100. Not something I would just take the emmissions place's word on.

Shouldn't it have a sticker in the engine compartment regarding the cat? I remember that from '70s and early '80s cars.
