catalytic converter

i am not deleting it.


my cherokee has 105,000 miles on it and i am about to replace my stock cat back with a dynomax kit. should i replace my cat while im at it? its just rusty and looks like its holding up (wish i could say the same about my muffler ) if i dont replace it now i'll probly have it replaced at my next oil change along with my whole exhaust being wielded together.

thanks

If your going to have the exhaust work done might as well do it all at the same time. Usually the cat will not need replaced but if you feel the need now is the time to have it taken care of... Just my 2 cents...

Yea, while the exhaust work is being done, you might as well remove another bottleneck and get a hi-flow cat installed.

Better to replace it now and avoid having the cat go out a little later after you just put a new muffler on cause if the cat goes out it will blow the guts into the muffler and then you will have to replace both.
