Yes, legally as well as performance wise. Your vehicle needs the back pressure from the factory exhaust components for the engine to run correctly.
There is no reason to remove the cat, but it is illegal to do so.

The catalytic converter must remain in the exhaust system so that the engine can perform properly, and meet emissions standards. The resonator, located at the rear bumper, can be removed without affecting anything. The sound of the exhaust may increase a small amount, and the looks of the rear area will be improved especially if a chrome tip is added to the extension pipe that would replace the resonator.

There has to be codes. Well you melted another converter. Your injectors are leaking and the raw gas is overheating and melting your converter Your plugs are black that means way over rich and no codes? If you take the cat loose it puts a code in immediately

Will not pass emissions - have replaced catalitic (sp?) convertor - have also had that pf switch thing cleaned out - readings got higher after the new cat convertor was put in? help


renew the O2 sensors ,92 then it may only have one in front of the cat and make sure their are no leaks on the exhaust as this will increase the oxygen reading and it will fail

02 sensors


They screw into the exuast, 02s1 is before cat convertor, It checks emissions prior to the convertor, 02s2 is after the cat convertor, it verifies the convertor has done its job

I would try to clean out the egr valve , check for leaks at the evap canister, check the evap canister soleniod , and lastly change out the cat convertor, The cat convertor is most likely under the federal emmission warranty of 8 yrs,.80000 miles. You can take the vehicle in to have checked by local dealer or call gm customer service to check the warranty on the cat. convertor by giving them your vehicle number.

CATALYTIC CONVERTOR - BANK 2


You have a V6 engine, bank one is the row of cylinders on the passenger (right) side, bank two is the row of cylinders on the drivers side (left). Your codes indicate an inefficiency in the cat on the left side but this could be due to a bad O2 sensor or an engine that is out of tune and overloading the cat. This car seems too new to have a bad cat. I would change the plugs and the O2 sensor after the cat before going any further. The reason I say the O2 after the cat, it's the one that is critical in sensing cat efficiency. What is the mileage?

I think you will find the aftermarket Cat Conv. is the source of your problem, but without hooking up to the factory test equipment at my disposal at my Ford dealer this at best and educated guess based on 20 years of emission related work, I am a Ford certified master electronics technician
