Do you have a GXP? Do you have a tune if you have a GXP? If so, it's time for an oil catch can..... That's more then likely the reason your cat keeps dying.... Unless of course you meant buttercup.... :lol:

Completely stock GXP but do drive the s--- out of it . It's got 85k. Had the first one replaced at around 50k I think. just had the replacement cat go bad. Dealer wants 1000 dollars to fireplace it but if it's going bad at around every 30k, I can't afford that.

Yep 80,000 miles or 8 years, whatever comes first. (From page 18 of your warranty manual)

I would be contacting the regional rep though and seeing if they can do anything for you as a good will gesture under the circumstances. Do you use Top Tier gas or the cheapest you can find when you need to fill up?

If I had to buy a new one it wouldn't be an OEM one.

If it were me I wouldn't replace it with OEM. I'd buy a hi-flow and replace it myself. Now, I'm driving an N/A and it's only about a 20-30 minute job. I've read there's a little more to it with the turbo.
