Question: Will Sunfire Run Alright Without Catalytic Converter,
I have a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire 2.2L non ecotec. The catalytic converter is plugged so i was wondering if i could just rip the inside of it out or could i just take it off and put a pipe in the place? I’ve heard of people doing that and the check engine light will come on but they said it still runs fine.
Its not illegal to not have one in the state i live in.
Best answer for Will Sunfire Run Alright Without Catalytic Converter
Its illegal and you could get one hefty fine for not having it. Its extremely harmful to the environment to not have one, thats why all vehicles nowadays have one.
You can get pipes, tips, etc to change the look, sound, etc… just go to a local Auto Parts store. But if caught without a catalytic converter, be ready to shell out some $$$.
