Cat converter issues

Hi All

Carsoft says my Cats are Noxious.
Spare parts place says about $900.00 for original replacement.
Exhaust workshop says they need to be European Std 400 cell per inch Cat converters at about $300.00 each plus installation, but they will not fit in space provided.
If they replaced them with a single or double highflow 200 CPI unit/s it could affect my engine management.

Has anyone been down this road and what were the issues please.
