no not toxic. you can sell your old one for around $100. most have platnuim in them. if you remove it it is a federal offense up to $50,000 fine if you are caught. another example of goverment too big. alot of muffler shops will run you a custom exhaust for off road. you do not need the cat for off road.

you may want t check for vacumn leaks to the MAP before you go to the trouble of taking the convertor off also check the MAF i have a feeling the issues you are experiencing are more sensor component related than is catylitic convertor also the air idle motor in the injection system can cause the same problems if the air idle valve is stuck or the ports in the intake manifold are clogged

If you hit it a few times with a hammer, it usually frees it enough to run. You may still be able to locate a "test pipe" from a local auto parts store. They were widely available years ago to "test" the exhaust system. Yes, you can remove it and replace it with a "test pipe" or other such pipe and it will run fine. However, it may be against your local or state laws and I don't recommend it. That being said. Thank you for using Fixya.

If you just want to remove it i will just be very loud but all you have to do is lift the car and just saw it off with anything from a angle grinder to a reciprocating saw.
