So this last round of work on my BKO we had to install a catalytic converter. Guess we weren't exempt after all since it's my daily 🙄 I'm not really happy with the one they put on. I'm not sure what brand or whatever he used, it's on my to do list to find out, but I hate the way she sounds now and it feels like I've lost horsepower 😠 when accelerating she doesn't have that growl she use to. If I smash it there's no rumble anymore but almost sounds poufy, like there's a leak but she still rumbles down when I take my foot off the gas. Sounds great decelerating, sounds like a dog accelerating 😥 I need some suggestions here guys. I've seen y'all talk about performance cats and exhaust systems at length... What do I need to do to get my hp and my growl back?
