bcohen2010, I actually had a 1977 ford maverick the cat plugged up my mechanic took it off and ream that bee hive out of their. it ran great.
I figured the OP was facing the cost of replacement and didn’t want to spend the money. After all, we’re talking about a 22 year old truck, aren’t we?
With that in mind, if the OP can afford it, he or she should bite the bullet and get a new catalytic converter.
I know. I thought we were discussing removing the cats on an OBD 2 rig, and what would happen. Federal emissions aside.
Understood. Which means the post cat 02’s do more than just monitor the efficiency of the converter, assuming the computer does adjust (based on input from post cat 02 sensors).
