Catholic converters are fraught with problems and best got rid off : the best way to do this is to burn them out the old fashioned way by building a large bonfire around a stake , tie the exhaust to the stake and light the fire .Stand well back and enjoy the spectacle with your chums amidst much jollity .
After the embers have cooled remove the exhaust from the ashes and refit , you will find that the catholic converter has been cleansed from the system and the exhaust will emit a truly righteous melody as you open the throttle .
Plus you will avoid the attention of these guys ;
