Best answer for Can My Car Run Without A Catalytic Converter
No it will not run correctly. There is oxygen sensor that senses your exhaust coming out of the engine. The computer will detect un burn fuel and will not allow enough fuel into the motor. The check engine light will be flashing.
The only vehicles that you can remove the catalytic converter are those with carburetor that doesn’t have oxygen sensor (early 80s and 70s). I’ve noticed that street motorcycles are now have oxygen sensor.
You should leave the catalytic converter alone (illegal to remove). If the original one is bad take it to muffler shop and have them install an after market.
