Where is my catalytic converter supposed to be?!

I got a 93 prelude si a few weeks ago and failed emissions. The guy who had it before me did a half ass job installing after market headers and down pipe and now i'm missing my catalytic converter. I look under the car and I see the headers connecting to the flex pipe (with a sensor right before the flex pipe) and after the flex pipe it's stock exhaust connected to a aftermarket muffler..

I've searched this site and google and can not find where the catalytic converter is suppose to be.. can anyone help me on this? This wouldn't be so confusing if the guy who had it before me didn't do such a ****ty job..

The cat should be literally RIGHT after the flex pipe.

Re: Where is my catalytic converter supposed to be?!

That could be very likely.
Does it look like the original cat? Or newer/aftermarket?

if he wasn't sure he had one, or didn't know where it was, he's not likely to know if it's original...

Re: Where is my catalytic converter supposed to be?!

I've come to the conclusion that it's most likely hollowed out. I'm going to replace it this weekend.

I found this guy parting out a 92 prelude on craigslist and when I asked him about his clear tail lights he told me he had a cat too. All he said was that it's a hi flo catalytic converter..
I'm pretty broke too so anything to pass inspection will do.

I left this out; when I went to inspection they failed me because my idle was at 1200 and my emissions. The guy also clearly stated "you don't have a catalytic converter."

just be aware that most "high flow" catalytic converters are nothing more than test pipes... you will still fail emissions if this is what the guy is attempting to sell you. Magnaflo makes a bolt on catalytic converter that is high flo, but will still pass emissions.

try to get a post a pic of it before you buy it, so we can help you make the right choice.

yes that will fail emissions. Go buy a real cat. Short Hair Domestics are always a good choice.

Re: Where is my catalytic converter supposed to be?!

You can actually clean out the cat converter with bleach. IF your old cat isnt hollowed out and too far gone you can actually get A good amount of $$$ for them. THey have very rare and valuable metals in them.
I did it to my cat and I noticed an improovement in gas smell and some flow.
BUT as for the bleach get a bunch(of bleach) and block off a hole. fill the cat up and take a rubber mallet and tap the sides. this helps free up some of the carbon/burned **** in the cat.

Re: Where is my catalytic converter supposed to be?!

Thanks for all the info guys, the one on my car is a test pipe. I'm going to get a magnaflo cat from autozone for 127$ with a 20% discount..I still have a month to go before I have to go back to inspection so i'll do it in the next couple of weeks. Today i'm replacing the leaky clutch master cylinder and the squeaky slave cylinder. & spark plugs..

Re: Where is my catalytic converter supposed to be?!

^ good choice. just make sure it's the one with flanges already welded on, makes installation a lot easier. I got lucky and scored a brand new one for $50 shipped on ebay.

you're on the right track to getting this car to a reliable daily driver standard.
