1992 Ford Mustang LX Question: whats involved with tightening the catalytic converter
Answer #1mastertech6371 March 09, 2012, 17:24Master
it is the shield. it must stay on the cat. wrap it with hose clamps if you have to. the cat will most likely have to be replaced as the shield is not available separately.

The damage is already done. You need a catalytic converter. You need to make sure that the engine is not running to rich before you put a new cat on. Otherwise you will be installing another.
