Default Catalytic Converters...

Apparently I need to replace them, since I live in the Communistwealth of Virginia, I can't just ditch them.

Need suggestions. Since I won't be driving for the next 8-12 weeks, I have time to take suggestions and research.

No issues with mine on either car, so not much help here. Running all stock exhaust?

So if you clear the code.............it comes back
You can:
Assure no exhaust leaks
Get the cat codes permanently turned off via tuning
replace cats with new headers/cats on back

Install MIL eliminators


How many miles now?

153000 miles

I need to crawl under it when I'm healed up. So I'm basically researching for the next 8-10 weeks minimum.

So I'm kinda mobile now....

I replaced the rear O2 sensors..we'll see what that does. How does one "tune" those off? I'm guessin' a software purchase would be involved? MIL eliminators?

You need to find someone with the software to tune. With that, they can turn just about anything off.
