Catalytic Converter Replacement
I just removed the catalytic converter from a 94 chevy s10 blazer, 4.3 liter vortec - fun! I found loose chucks of catalyst material as well a hole clear through the converter. I have two questions:
1. It is clear to me that the converter is destroyed as evidenced by the loose chunks. However, do healthy converters have holes in them so you can see through them.
2. Where can I find a good replacement (company and part #). I am not necessarily looking for better performance or sound. My main concern is cost and of course passing the emissions test I must take before I can drive the vehicle full time again.
