While doing exhaust work on my recently purchased 200q20v, a chunk of cat.
converter substrate was found in the left exhaust pipe before the middle

I figured that the cats would need changing (orginal cats, car has 140K), but
this seems like it is not the normal way a cat fails.

The car pulls 1.8 bar and has a IA III+ chip and right now runs great. Any
ideas if an anomolous engine event caused cat explosion, or is this a sign of
something more chronic?
