For those of you who don't know what a Catalytic Converter is, refer to this
After checking shops at Gulshan and PECHS my friend and I finally went to Zamzama and we were not at all surprised that nobody knew about the catalytic Converter but a high profile shop owner told us to go to Gizri to a particular shop and said that the guy is an expert in all exhaust related work and we refer all our customers with some special queries to him. We decided to give it a one last shot and went there. After locating the shop, we stepped out and I asked the guy "Catalytic Converter maloom hai? hoping that he would'nt have the slightest idea about what it is but to my surprise he responded "haan, nikaalna hai kya?" and we were like... woa!
The whole process took about 15 minutes and the best part is that the guy charged RS. 150/= only
The guy used a welding torch, took the contents out (exactly what you have shown in your picture) welded the thing back again. After reading your DIY I think that he did'nt just removed the whole box, he simply emptied it. Do you think that we should get the box removed too? and guys... no problems after the exercise, no warning lights nothing. According to my friend he is feeling a change in the pick too!
The shop is located at the main Gizri road by the name of "Lucky Silencer". The guy's name is babar, he does'nt have a cellphone but his brother has one and here is the number 03002805279. Happy Catalytic Converter removing!
P.S. If anyone is planning to get this thing done then try to get it done before eid, the guy might have a great eid because of the business given by Pakwheelers!
