    Hi all,

    While doing exhaust work this weekend , I noticed on the bottom of the Cat a circular lid.
    Is this to clean out the converter?
    Do i just open the lid and let the junk fall out?
    Do i put new stuff back in?

    Thanks

    Kevin

    Question converter

    Are you aware that 17 years age there was a recall on many GM cat converters? The '81 Corvette was on the list.

    Just something for the NCRS guys to think about...most '81s don't have their original converters.

    Kevin,

    Take it off and put a two-stage Cat back on. You won't regret it. My two-stage still passes the insane MD sniffer test with flying colors.
