V-1.........weird........yeah I wont go over 3500 rpms, i mean it still goes up to like 70mph, but it takes long to get up there.........and theres a rattling noise comming from the exhaust......someone told me it was the catalytic converter.......but i wanted to make sure before i bought the damn anyways feedback would be appreciated.....thaks

Sounds like a cat... Try removing it and temporarily fitting a test pipe.
