    I wouldn't drive it a whole lot without watching the motor on a scanner to see how off balance it is. A clogged cat can result in a lot of excessive heat that can do some serious damage. Get a used cat for $50 which is a lot safer than losing your engine.

    If your winter car is ready for use , I would put the T/A away.
