Default A hole on exhaust pipe.

A hole was found on the exhaust pipe of my 97 camry. The mechanic suggested me to replace the pipe as well as converter. It is really expensive! I am wondering if I have to replace the converter?

i have basically the same problem. you could cut it before the cat and replace it there. or on ebay they have a cat up exhaust for cheap. it even comes with headers and a new downpipe. it is just a cheap bolt on kit. im working on getting one

just cut and weld....not a huge deal. Garage wants to switch out the cat so they can sell it. Good metal value

on my dads silverado, we just cut the top and bottom out of a soup can, and cut a line in it. Then we wrapped it around the hole and put some pipe clamps on it. works just fine, and sounds normal
