I have a `96 With a 4.6 and I`ve noticed the cataletic converter is getting so hot ,you can feel between the center console and the passenger side seat and it is so hot you cant keep your hand there! I assume this means that the cat is clogging up and needs to be changed . Have any of you gutted your cataletic converters? What did it change? I know the exhaust will be louder but I hope not too loud. Also does the engine run better or will it make the computer start acting up?Will my Check engine light start comming on? Please help.
