Catalytic Converter

How do we know when a catalytic converter is bad? Do we need them on our vehicles and/or what dangers are there in cutting them off?

Well, the danger in cutting them off is the Federal gov catching you and taking all you money. They have no sense of humor about that type of stuff.
They can go bad in many ways. They can get contaminated, restricted, inefficient or break internal baffles.
