    So who has had a catylytic converter suddenly just vibrate to hell at idle speeds ?

    I welded my muffler pretty well and no leaks and still solid . So I guess I'm welding on a new cat before this weekends trip :mad:

    i told him to do that as well, for the time being anyways, but he's affraid of the tiny amount of extra hydrocarbon he'll be putting in the air, might kill off another butterfly or something.:p:

    if your cat itself is rattling like crazy, its blown apart ineternally and not doing much good anyway. You still have the factory giant flat pan thinger full of little metal balls? Get a simple new style honeycomb one. They are cheap, effective, and flow better than the stockers.

    Yup I figured as much . It just sucks welding on your back , I would love a big a$$ ceiling and a lift . Boogery splatter flux core welds , but if I am lucky enough to get some mud on there next rain it will look much better .

    Good thing is its tight and it actually sounds like a real truck now . The original one ( well original to the previous owner , not to the Blazer !!!! ) was too small , and the crap came apart , and I betcha it was all trying to go out the small hole in the rear and bottlenecking . It got nice and throaty . 2.5 inch hi-flow .

    I still passed emissions every 2 years , maintain it and it works .

    Heres the cell phone pics :D
