it is very important to find out why the first Catalytic Converter failed. the fact that it got noisy is not a reason, that is a symptom. The original converter failed because of a poor fuel/ignition problem. it cracks up because it got over worked. You need to find a shop that can really find the root of your problem or you will be replacing Cats forever. I do Smog in Northern Ca and I deal with this every day.

Best of Luck!
