A catalytic converter works by the various precious minerals and metals inside it. Quite simply they convert the dangerous chemicals inside the exhaust gases(carbon monixide,NOx etc) into less harmful ones (carbon dioxide etc). Due to the minerals and metals inside though they are often target to thieves as they can fetch quite a high price at the scrap yard. The catalytic converters that got stole off the HGV's at our work had a value of £800!
Catalytic converters work by having the heated gases react with the precious metals in the catalytic converter. There is platinum palladium and rhodium in a catalytic converter all three are very expensive and rare metals. Because of the honeycomb shape of the catalytic biscuit there is a lot of surface area for the gas to be neutralized on.
Prior to catalytic converters being on every car for every mile you drove your car would punch out somewhere around 100g's of pollution. After the addition of catalytic converters with platinum and palladium this number dropped to less than 1g of pollution per mile. After the addition of rhodium it dropped N/E which is non detectable.
No, that will not work. A restricted catalytic converter will need replaced.

Legally you can only replace a catalytic converter with another catalytic converter.

It's not up to you, when to "make the catalytic converter to work"!... The catalytic converter will provide the chemical reaction alone only @ 400 > degree, no options! See/Google "how it works" and that will help you understand how and why!

what is the surface area of a catalytic converter
Yes, it has a catalytic converter.
There is not an antitheft cover for the catalytic converter. The catalytic converter gets extremely hot and cannot be covered.
Replace the catalytic converter.
There's no possible way to pass inspection with a bad catalytic converter, if if you find out you have a bad catalytic converter during your inspection you have a chance after you after you have replaced the catalytic converter and the inspection no no charge/free!!
If you're referring to removing the catalytic converter from your vehicle, first off this is illegal. Secondly no modern engine will run properly with the catalytic converter removed. You must have a fully functional catalytic converter in place.
I would not touch it except to install a converter.
