Lightbulb catalytic converters on 96 chevy

You have to keep the converters . For starters its a 10,000$ federal offense to remove them . Your truck has what they call an OBD II computer system, Starting About 96 the epa stated that all vehicles computers had to moniter not only engine management systems but also emissions too. Basicly what it boils down to is the two O2 sensors after the cats moniter catalyst efficency. If you remove the cats it will set a fault code and cause the system to run in safe mode which is probly worse than now.The solution to Your problem if your cats are bad would be to install some high flow converterts , Its like not having any. One last comment . If your engine has a running problem It can easily ruin your converters if not repaired quickly

Thanks Muffman! I didn't want to have to explain all that. In Pa. you have to have you're convertors in place and working. Who told him that?
