Default Cat. Converter Install?

Darn, seems that my dad's camry needs a new catalytic converter. He checked with a few places, the prices they charge for install are insane! How hard might it be to put one in, for a person who is moderatly good with tools and such? Is it as easy as taking out some bolts and such? Thanks as always!

Hey it all depends on theyear and size motor you're runnin. Overall, yea I'd imagine you wouldnt have a problem. It was a cakewalk for me to do so, I had mine off 3 times in a week (tryin to find leaks) and you could buy one off ebay for MUUUUCH less than anyone wants to admit. I went to the dealership and they quoted me $800. I went on ebay and found it for $115, shipping included. So yea, all it is is one big pipe, 2 maybe 3 bolts on each end (depending on the year) Pull out the old one, put the new one in, put the bolts back.

So what are the year/engine you're workin on?

Oh, my bad, forgot to put year and such. It's a '00 camry 5S-FE (I4). I'm guessing this would be sufficient? Thanks for the reply.
