Usually when a shop says it needs replaced, it needs replaced due to the output of the catalyst is too high to pass emission standards. I would try an exhaust shop for a replacement price, the one they gave you is too high.

Try rockauto.com or the muffler shop for a universal converter. It'll be much cheaper. Also, be sure that the correct replacement converter is installed. If your Pacifica has California emissions you must put a C.A.R.B. (California Air Resource Board) compliant converter back on or the check engine light and converter trouble code will return right away. HTH. -Jim
