Did Chrysler ever tell their customers why so many of their factory catalytic converters broke up inside, rattled, then plugged?

Chrysler ended up putting 2 free replacement cats on my truck.

That had to cost at least $1000, maybe even +2000.

Multiply that by the number of vehicles they sold in those years.

Maybe the catalytic converter supplier had to pay all or part of that huge bill.

I remember my father's '77 Cordoba, which had a huge sign on the driver's sun visor "Do not Park on Grass"

Technically emissions equipment is federal and it's illegal to mess with. But my excuse to remove it would be it's bad and the part is no longer available,

Unless it's clogged it won't make much if any improvement removing it. The lack of performance is because of the 4.1. That's one of the reasons the earlier models of those Cadillacs are the ones people want even the ones with the 8-6-4.

I understand the problem. Long term solution is a swap to an LS4.

I usually put them in one of those cat caddies, and remove the feline from the car. Just drive the 64 Plymouth instead!

What more can you ask for than some pussy and a tunnel ram dual quad intake manifold for a Hemi!

I'm thinking the cat weighs more than a Hemi
