Cat Converters and High Flow Cat Converters
Introduced to Australian vehicles in 1986, catalytic converters clean up the gases made by petrol engines. Fitted to the exhaust system of a Pontiac Firebird, they look like a small muffler and were established as a legal requirement close to 20 years ago.
The combustion process of a petrol engine is never perfect. Dangerous gases, such as nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons will arise and it is the job of the catalytic converter to reduce these to safer emissions. These cat converters can fail by becoming clogged, or if the engine has bad exhaust valves or the plugs fail, causing unburned fuel to overheat the converter. Mettam's Mufflers can resolve these issues with your Pontiac Firebird by replacing your damaged or clogged cat converter with a standard or hi-flow cat converter in under 1 hour.
Many of our Pontiac Firebird exhaust system products are available in mild steel or stainless steel. When making the decision between a mild steel or stainless steel option, durability is the point of difference.
Stainless steel will last longer, require less frequent maintenance and improves the overall appearance of your vehicle.
Two examples of accessories that Mettam's Muffler's can provide to your Pontiac Firebird are stainless steel mufflers and stainless steel tips and chrome ends. These products can add a distinct sound and look to every car.
