Question: Do I Keep My Scrap Catalytic Converter With A Replacement,
I have a Subaru Legacy 96, so i do not need emmisions. My Catalytic has a crack and its clogged up. My mechanic says he can replace the Catalytic Converter with a pipe, because its an old car and you dont need emissions anymore. When he replaces my cat, can i take it as a junk part and scrap it? Or does he get to keep it???? That would jsut seem downright wrong.

It’s called the Law! Your “Mechanic” can go to prison for that (If he Is caught)
In a reputable shop, When the Catalytic Converter is replaced, the shop must label the failed converter, and hold it for a period of 30 days, after that the customer can come pick it up if He/She wants to.
This is the EPA law!
