Is it weird that at night is when I get the thoughts about what I should or shouldn't do to the car? Thoughts like those usually end up costing me money

Something just gave out in my engine. Started clacking to the point that I had to restart it. It runs but it hesitates under load and there's an engine light. Everything looks good under the hood. On my way to AutoZone to pull the code...

P0305 - Cylinder 5 Misfire
P0430 - Cat below efficiency

Come to think of it, I think I remember reading a few threads where the car will start to act weird and have the same symptoms you describe because of bad cats. Let me see if I can find the threads

I'm don't know if you've done any permanent damage or even if that's it but here's a thread about cylinder 5 misfire. I'd definitely get the cats looked over

Do you know if you are running on a dangerous side of rich? That is the most common cause for a bad cat. I'm not sure if having on cut out open could cause that but I wouldn't rule it either.

Damn that thread has me scared...

I think I'm safe in regards to the cats, I have the rear cats deleted and occasionally it comes on, mostly randomly.

I'm on the stock tune, just intake, spacer, and a ported manifold.

My next thing i would suggest with a cylinder misfire is to pull the plugs and see how they look And to also look at the connections. The plugs will also tell you if you are running on a dangerous rich that could potentially damage the cats. From what i have heard its pretty simple to pull the plugs on these cars but i have never done it myself.

I was one of those threads! Car sounds horrible and doesnt perform when you push the pedal right? I had 3 cylinder misfires, but it never said that I had something wrong with the cat.

My dealer replaced mine without me paying 1 cent. Best part is that I am full bolt on so they didnt blame any of it on any of the mods.

good luck dudddeee

I hope it just the cat...just took it for a spin and beat on it. I've been having trouble telling how strong the engine feels but it did just break loose in 1st from a 15 roll so thats good. Gonna keep the cut out closed for a full month and see what happens. It would make sense that running one cut out right after the cats could cause misfires...right?

What else could it be? I'm gonna try pulling the plugs menendez.

With Misfires it could be either Fuel, Spark, or Air and several things could cause an issue in either of those things. If you had one cut out open and one closed it could freak out the O2 sensors and change some of the properties the computer is calculating for the air mixture. But I'm not sure if your cutouts are pre O2 or post O2.
