I think it would enable your car to pass the emission test.
Based on the code (DTC) for NO CATALYTIC CONVERTER wouldn't be amongst the reasons for CHECK ENGINE LIGHT to show on your dashboard.

I'm believing that is all it would do.

but wd never perform the roles of the removed catalytic converter.
Emission test in Nigeria? you are talking of a country where we cook with fire wood angry

The fellow that tried it with me regretted his action. I changed my silencer net and in the process he removed the catalytic converter. I discovered immediately I cranked the engine cos I know much about vehicles, then I asked him why the change in sound of the car and the werey told me that it was because of the new net. I just smiled and went to fetch two of my police friends and narrated everything to them and where to locate it in the vehicle. We got to the workshop and I confronted him but in their usual manner he vehemently denied it. without wasting time, my people demanded that the car be jacked, omo come and see drama grin my man was looking for jack that was right in the boot. After every every he started begging and luckily for me he hadn't sold it. he was first asked to replace it and later taken away for some days .


Smart wink
i must commend your action

well, u are right.

I was thinking there are times whereby emission tests are compulsorily done in nigeria.

Like when I want to use the car for UBER or BOLT

I sent my car to my painter, it came back sounding like a v8 , I suspected something was wrong , took it to my panelbeater, he inspected and told me the catalytic converter under the car was stolen. I picked up the painter, at the end he spent ₦200,000 getting a Toks catalytic converter for my corolla


You can also get this product if you don't want to buy a catalyst.

Have your vehicle scanned , if you have p0420 or 430 there is no catalyst
dis is not true.... P0420 indicates that the catalytic converter is not functioning efficiently...

She gave a lot of misinformation in that catalytic converter threat that made front page. Unfortunately, most Nigerians (who do not bother to carry out independent research) have swallowed this misinformation hook, line and sinker.

Most model vehicles comes with OBD input to connect to the car's ECU. You will first need to buy an OBD 2 Bluetooth device as shown below. Then download the OBD Torque App from Playstore and connect the devise to your phone using its Bluetooth. Once connected, your can scan for fault codes, clear faults, view your car's engine data etc.
