Well has anyone with their turbo cars get a clogged or melted convertor??? How did you know? What are the signs?? I know the sign of lack of power but i think i may have a clooged converter. If i get no responses i guess i'll have to wait till wed to bring it to work and pull the converter down.

I melted the inside of my cat, it felt like therewas something holding my car back around 4-5K rpm. I dropped it out and it was bad. Hope this helps.

I guess this is something that I have to look forward to since I have a converter on my car now. Lucky I got a e-cutout!

Do what I did.. I took it off and destroyed everything in it.. after I did that my car hits redline so much quicker. Right now my car is running a little rich so I was gonna kill it anyways so I got head of time before the car did. :)
