US versus Euro

Anyone know the specific difference between a US-spec catalytic converter versus one that comes on a Euro-market car? Considering that there's a $4,000 difference between the two of them, I suspect that the US-market one has a greater cell count, but would appreciate some clarification.

Thanks

David, that's what I would think, particularly if the US one is not only a federal converter, but also carries a Cali stamp. It's probably 400 or even 800 cpi, whereas a Euro converter might be as low as 200 or so?

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

number of cells are different 400 vs 600. I doubt about 430s but newer cars like 458s has 800 cells due to more strict emission rules.

My understanding is that Euro spec 360's do not have the pre-cats in the headers, where US cars do. If there are differences in the main cats, I am not aware of those differences. There are also "air-injectors / air rails" as well in the USA cars? Think I remembered this correctly?

David- Bet they would work and still pass emissions tests.
