Hey guys thanks for the concern but to clear a few things up, this car is and always will be a lemon due to having over 20 repair bills with some parts being repaired 4 times. The only reason I wasn't able to file was because unfortunately I had a very strict work schedule getting my career to start and had no time to deal with it.
I WILL NOT SELL THE CAR, IT'LL BE PARTED OUT NEXT YEAR. Chevy themselves wanted to buy my car off of me (because the engine) when it had 100,000 miles and I took it in for service they said the engine was in pristine condition and would like to make an offer. I refused because I didn't want some poor soul to deal with my car without a warranty.
The ONLY reason I want to remove the catalytic converter is to be able to drive my car without it refusing to start due to the clog(which is starting to hinder my acceleration and gas mileage by 2mpg) until early next year when I buy my new car, while having a bit of fun too.
*EDIT* Chevy just replaced the up and down stream O2 sensors last month btw.
I understand the laws in California and I'll gladly pay the fine or anyone else's fine if they get caught which is next to impossible.
Thank you again for the concern but I just wanted to know if the catalytic converter was on the down pipe and behind the downstream O2 sensor.
*EDIT#2* The car has 130,000 on it btw. I won't make it to 200,000 and it only got this far because I baby the **** out of it fluid and part wise but drive it like a bat out of **** every single day.
