    catalytic converters

    YES! once again my cats are acting up!
    ok, i have MAC headers and the catted y-pipe
    the cats suck ASS
    is there any way i can replace the cats on that same y-pipe with some other kind?
    the cat on the passenger side is the one that is always messing up
    i was driving for a minute and then the cat started to rattle really bad
    i dont know y it is always that damn side
    btw, i have an SES light that reads secondary air injection system malfunction that i STILL cant get rid of
    maybe thats the reason the cat keep messing up
    sorry for writing too much...any suggestions?
    thanks.

    cool, so basically they can cut the old cats off the y-pipe and install the new ones on the same y-pipe?
