Mopar short cats?

I was talking to a guy who thought mopar had cats that were somewhat compact and had steel wool inside (as opposed to??) which was to make them last longer??
I don't know much about cats but want some that I don't have to replace often. I'll be running mine with headers

I know Ford used to have a small cat that was part of an "H" pipe assembly on Mustangs and larger cars too...they were about 4" diameter and less than a foot long. What was in them, I dont know.....You can but small aftermarket cats quite cheaply.
