Default Civic Catalytic Converter - Aftermarket OK?

Hello all. My 01 Civic just failed inspection because of the check engine light. Looks like I need a new catalytic converter. Honda quoted me $1100 to replace it, and warned me not to use aftermarket parts. I normally would have dismissed it, but my normal mechanic told me the same thing.

In making a couple calls, I can get the same work down with aftermarket parts for about 450 bucks.

Anyone have any experience with this? Is it correct that "Hondas don't like afterket cats"??? Thanks in advance...

Does the aftermarket job come with a guarantee it will pass inspections?

Good question. I'll confirm that. I assume it would, since I can get the work done at VIP, and they will also be the ones who sticker me.
