Dead Cat

Just a data point - the Jackson Racing catalytic converter on the supercharged '94 died a couple weeks ago. It's been on the car for 8 years and around 90,000 miles so I certainly can't complain. The failure mode was one of the elements inside the can broke loose and turned sideways. The car lost power big time and sounded terrible. I ordered up a replacement from RSpeed which ended up being a Magnaflow unit. The new unit looks identical to the JR unit, with the exception of the JR tag welded to the old one. I installed it late last week and all is good with the world once again.
