i just put a flow master on my 93 bronco 5.8L today and my buddy told me to take off the cat.

i hear rumors that the broncos have 2 cats?

what i want to know is would it be better to take off the cat(s)? or just buy a new one?

if i should buy new one could you post the ebay link for it? and also the size i need?




thanks,
Xero

Your buddy is an idiot. Search a little on these forums, as we've covered almost every conceivable exhaust setup known for these trucks. To the point, yes your truck should have two converter beds from the factory: the first is either a regular TWC (three-way catalyst) or reduction bed, the second a COC (conventional oxidation catalyst). Typical practice is to replace both with a single TWC rated for the vehicle's engine size and GVW.

Don't toss your old converters...you can get about $150 for them on eBay if you list them correctly. Then search on here for "Bassani" and "Catco". Catco is the eBay converter most seem to use. Also check out these threads:

And...you'll catch hell on here if you keep asking questions without searching. Spend 2-3 nights searching for different key words relating to your project and there is a 99% chance you'll find out almost everything you need to know. Make a Bronco folder in your favorits and start bookmarking....
