Catalytic Converter (2 of them? Are they necessary?)
Today I decided to go ahead with the replacement of my exhaust system. I found TWO catalytic converters... one big, old, and rusty and the other newer, much smaller and in great shape. IM going to try to save them both and just replace the pipes, muffler, tail pipes and chrome tips, but was curious as to why there are two of them. Can I do with just the small one? Can I remove them completely? I know I wouldn't pass emissions without one, but I am exempt anyway. What does a catalytic converter do, and will my car run as well, better or worse than it does now if I removed it?
