EPA Direct Fit Close Coupled Catalytic Converters:

Davico Manufacturing’s EPA Direct Fit Close Coupled Catalytic Converters are made to high standards to replace a failed, damaged or missing original equipment (OE) Catalytic Converter.
They are made to be easily installed with just basic tools as a direct fit replacement which will function as did the OE Converter when in spec. Most Close Coupled Catalytic Converters are shipped with new gaskets but all gaskets must be replaced to insure proper seals. Liquid or RTV sealers SHOULD NOT be used anywhere near the replacement Catalytic Converter or on Oxygen Sensor ports.
Davico Manufacturing’s Direct Fit Close Coupled Converters are designed to bolt directly the the exhaust manifold using the engine as a heat source to light off and to start working quickly. Replacements MUST be checked for unmetered air or exhaust leaks. Even the smallest air leak can affect engine and emissions performance. Special attention should be given to worn or broken motor mounts.

It is equally important that you resolve the issue that caused the failure of the OE Converter before installing the replacement part. There are many engine management related issues that can damage a replacement Catalytic Converter if not fully resolved prior to the replacement. See our informational flyer shipped with each replacement Converter for help or contact us for technical assistance.
Installers or vehicle owners who check or replace Oxygen Sensors and decarbonize the engine prior to replacement can eliminate 85% or all comebacks or early failures.
