A factory catalytic convertor can be mounted to the exhaust manifolds and muffler pipe through hardware fittings.

In contrast, aftermarket "universal" catalytic convertors may have to be welded in or mechanically fastened on through screw-tensioned clamps.

What are the disadvantages of the catalytic converters?

Well one example I know of is I have a 1995 cheverolet silverado with a 5.0 v8 and I heard that cutting of the cat helps give me 20-30 more horsepower. Not as much resistance for the exhaust to go through if you take off the cat with all the baffels and other things inside it. If anyone was going to put true dual exhaust system on their vehicle it would make it louder and better. Know that it is illegal to remove a catalytic converter from any vehicle. Also any vehicle with the OBD2 system will not run properly with the converter removed.
