Hi Guys

Well just got some confirmation tonight. All today that noisy cat was
bothering me as I was driving around. Tonight I jacked it up and started
banging underneath. I heard a strange rattle coming from the exhaust so
whipped off...read busted off .... the two bolts fastening the muffler ( I
think that is what it is ) to the pipe and took it out . Sure enough after
about 30 seconds of shaking it out came to big hunks of catalytic converter
substrate. I guess I was lucky really as it didn't plug up the exhaust. The
cat sounds the same  and this is an aftermarket cat so it begs the question
is this substrate from the original cat ? the aftermarket one that is making
the noise .. or could it even be the other side. !
    I crawled back under for a closer inspection and my fears were
confirmed. A crease on the bottom part of the cat right at the front . The
PO obviously hit something and busted up the inside. Guess I am just living
with the noise now !!

P{S if anybody knows of a place that sells 5spd FWD  90 cats , please pass
it along. All the sights I have checked have been for automatic only
