Ready to give up; got codes

Ready to give up, engine will crank but won't start:
A friend came by an has a thing to plug in an check the codes. He ran the codes an 2 came up that's said confirmed. Something to do with the catalyst system bank 1 and bank2??
The numbers are po420 & po430. An both said confirmed at the end. I don't know what any of that is or how to go about fixin it. It's orobly somethin outrageously expensive. Can someone please give me some advise? May help me so I no the mechanic isn't bending me over an milk in me for every penny he can?!

If a Ford shop can confirm the codes refer to Co2 sensors or bad cats, then you can replace parts with new right away or get a set of MIL eliminators untill you can afford to get it fixed right.
I really think its a small problem. Dont worry, be happy. The Mustang will be zoomin around again in no time and most likely will be running 100X's better than it has been lately.

If you need cats, you can remove your stock 4 cats and install two Flowmaster cats. They pass emmesions year after year no problem
