    Default Poisoned catalytic converters in new Honda Civic (reborn:P)?

    Hi guys.
    I have a 2008 Civic with about 24,000km (Prosmatec transmission). Since the last 2-3 thousand kilometers, I've noticed the the performance, especially the pick-up of the car has been sluggish and the fuel economy has come down quite a bit. My cousin has the same car in Lahore and faced the same problem at about 30,000km. He got the catalytic converter removed and that solved the problem.

    I'm wondering if there are other members who have faced the same problem with this car. I would also appreciate if anyone can tell me where I can get the catalytic converter removed from in Islamabad/Pindi area and approximately what the cost would be.
    Thanks all.

    @AWK which workshop do u recommend. Any solution that doesn't involve cutting. If its life is 50K km then there should be some way to remove / change it without cutting
    not only steermatic, also idsi.my 06 had it but i got it off, after hitting in frm underside

    Can you please tell me if you experienced any drawbacks after removing the catalytic converter (such as increased engine noise)?

    Also, did you feel a change in power by a significant amount? The cata converter looks terribly BLOCKED in the picture you posted .
