How to Install a Catalytic Converter


Installing a Catalytic Converter

The Install Process

1. Jack up your rig so you have ample space to work underneath. Spray lube on your cat’s connecting hardware and loosen it up with a wrench.

2. Remove the old catalytic converter. If you have to, break it off with a hammer. But be careful not to rattle the rest of your exhaust.

3. Align your new cat with the factory bolts and tighten. It might help to have someone hold it in place so you have both hands free.

I'm on off-road enthusiast behind the wheel of a perpetual project 4x4 Tacoma. I like to play in the rocks, but won't shy away from fast runs through the desert. My passion came from my dad whose had me in and around cars for as long as I can remember.
