Catalytic converters change harmful substances in a car’s exhaust gasses, such as carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and hydrocarbons, into less harmful substances like carbon dioxide and water vapour by means of chemical reactions.
The interior of the ‘cat’ is usually filled with a honeycomb structure onto which a coating is applied that contains a catalyst - the substance that creates a reaction with the exhaust gasses, changing their chemical structure. Precious metals like palladium, rhodium and platinum are commonly used as the catalyst.
There are various types of catalytic converter. A simple ‘two-way’ oxidation cat works to turn carbon monoxide (CO) to carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrocarbons, which are basically particles of unburnt fuel, to carbon dioxide and water. More advanced ‘three-way’ catalytic converters are fitted to modern cars and these do the above while also reducing emissions of nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) which together are more commonly known as NOx, a major cause of localised air pollution.
Details and Specifications:
Type: 2.5 inch universal catalytic converter
Fitment and Notes:
2.5" ID Inlet/Outlet Universal Catalytic Converter, please make sure the exhaust pipe is 2.5 inch OD.
It’s illegal for use on vehicles required to meet California emission standards. ITEM NOT SALE IN CA & NY.
Meet or exceed OEM standards. Made from HD-Stainless steel, High flow design to provide more oxygen to your engine for an increase in power and performance, fully tested under the extreme conditions for heat resistance and service life.
Catalytic converter composed of shell, shock-absorbing layer, substrate, carrier, and catalyst.
The substrate material of the catalyst is mainly honeycomb ceramics, the structure increased the effective contact area with the exhaust gas to the most. Ceramics provide strength with lower density, the resistance of high temperature, small coefficient of thermal expansion, etc.
The carrier coating is usually Alumina (Al2O3), which compatibility both well with ceramics and catalyst, and provide good specific surface area and thermal stability.
And the precious metal catalyst is Rh, Pt, Pd. (Platinum Group Metals)
- Lower auto exhaust back pressure
- Reduces the emission of NOx
- More horsepower
- Free up torque
- Much better sound
Cutting and welding may require, professional installation is highly recommended.
Attention during Usage:
- Do not use leaded gasoline.
- Do not run fast for a long time (open-loop control state).
- Do not allow the engine speed to change quickly.
- The ignition time should not be too late.
- It won't start for a long time.
- Do not pull out the high-voltage line for a long time to test.
- When measuring the cylinder pressure, unplug the central control connector of the fuel pump, so that the injector can stop the injection of fuel into the cylinder.
- When it is found that the cylinder is not working properly, it should be stopped in time for inspection and troubleshooting.
- Avoid factors to a rich mixture, such as inadequate closing of the fuel injector, failure of the fuel pressure regulator, failure of the oxygen sensor, and failure of the air flow sensor
- As long as the catalytic converter is used correctly, it generally does not require maintenance, so do not disassemble it casually. If it needs to be replaced, it must be matched with the engine.

Installation of auto parts should be handled by a Certified Automotive Technician, and you should maintain a copy of the repair order after the repair is completed for your records. Remember, that having a certified technician install a part does not necessarily mean it was properly installed, but it will eliminate more of the common errors. On occasion, we may ask for the original repair order and other documentation regarding the repair to be sent to us in order to process the return. If your part is found to be defective, we'll send you the auto parts or refund you if necessary.
