MagnaFlow Ceramic Catalytic Converter Installation - 2007 Toyota Prius

Today on our 2007 Toyota Prius, we'll be installing the MagnaFlow Ceramic Catalytic Converter Direct Fit, part number MF49752. Now to begin our install, we'll first locate the catalytic converters and the attachment points. We have several. We have an O2 sensor that will have to be removed. We'll have to cut our pipe here behind the second catalytic converter and we'll have to disconnect it from the manifold. At the manifold, it's secured with two spring bolts, one on each side.

  • How Many Catalytic Converters Are Installed in 2002 Lexus ES300
  • The 2002 Lexus ES falls into the 4th generation of this design and if equipped with a 3.0L V6 engine it has three catalytic converters, according to my contact at MagnaFlow.

  • Difference Between Metallic and Ceramic MagnaFlow Catalytic Converters
  • I contacted our representative at MagnaFlow about the differences in the metallic and ceramic catalytic converters. The representative informed me that the metallic catalytic converters, like part # MF59956 are a bit stronger and would be good for applications where the catalytic converter is close to the header as they can handle more heat. The metallic ones are usually used on OBD1 applications. The ceramic catalytic converters, such as part # MF99659HM, are not as strong and usually...

  • Error Code P0420 After Replacing Exhaust Manifold Gasket and Using MagnaFlow Catalytic Converter
  • The most common things that can cause a P0420 error code are bad oxygen sensors, engine coolant temperature sensor malfunction (does not seem likely given what you have said), leaking exhaust, or a bad catalytic converter. Since you had a manifold gasket issue, it sounds like there could still be a leak in the system somewhere. This can happen with gasket replacement if any remnants of the old gasket were still on the block or manifold when the new one was installed. It could also...

  • Differences Between Ceramic Catalytic Converters and Stainless Steel Converters
  • In order to have a complete exhaust system for your 2001 Chevy Suburban you will need a cat-back system like a MagnaFlow Exhaust System # MF15798. Instructions link attached.

  • Can a Vehicle Run without Catalytic Converters Installed
  • We can't ever recommend you remove emissions related components on a vehicle. If you remove catalytic converters on a vehicle you will end up having Service Engine Soon codes pop on the dash of your vehicle. But to answer your question directly, your vehicle will still run just fine without catalytic converters installed. Cats do not actually help the engine run in any way. All they do is clean up the emissions. The O2 sensors before the cats are what is used for the air/fuel mixture...

  • Are Catalytic Converters Directional
  • The P0420 DTC you mention means that one or both of the catalytic converters isn't operating as efficiently as it or they should be. Catalytic converters aren't usually directional, but if the converter has the port for the o2 sensor built into it, and if the converter's been reversed so that the downstream sensor is sitting upstream of the converter, it would explain why you're getting the DTC.
