A catalytic converter from Walker Exhaust had to be installed since the original had been lost over the years. The catalytic converter takes exhaust gas and reduces carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, and hydrocarbons by flowing them past a catalyst and through a ceramic honeycomb. This causes a chemical reaction to that reduces the bond of the offending chemicals, creates heat, and results in less contaminates in the outgoing gases.
