    As you stated on your original post , perhaps the converter is failing and is causing an exhaust restriction , once warmed up. Having it monitored with a scanner that can read live data , or simply observing the difference in exhaust flow and temp from cold to warmed up will help confirm it. vacuum guage , used properly , can also confirm it.
