CATALYTIC CONVERTER BASICS
DESCRIPTION & OPERATION

The catalytic converter is a passive after-treatment device designed to reduce engine-out emission levels to meet an acceptable standard. Together with the Oxygen Sensors and other Engine Management components, this Emissions System works to reduce harmful emissions at the tail pipe. The catalytic converter contains two or more ceramic substrates, coated with a combination of Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium and a Ceria based wash coat, packed into a stainless steel housing. When placed in the right environment of heat (400°C) and proper air/fuel mixture the catalyst forces a chemical reaction reducing toxic gasses to less harmful ones.
 
 
Catalytic Converter Facts CATALYTIC CONVERTER FACTS

Catalytic converters help keep pollutants out of our environment, but they can also help restore performance if your existing catalytic converters are failing. Check out how we gained more than eight horsepower by simply replacing the broken catalytic converters in our project Chevy truck, and learn the advantages and disadvantages of direct-fit versus universal catalytic converters as we install some Magnaflow high-flow cats. From stock replacement parts to high-performance aftermarket accessories, Andy's Auto Sport has what you need to get the looks and power your vehicle deserves.
