Hello,
I got a subaru impreza 2011 rxi 2.0L.
The catalyst is about to break and the check engine light has popped.

Now i want to remove the catalyst from the car but the garage guy told me the check engine will stay.

Is there a better way to do so?

Yes it is. Anytime you alter anything to do with it passing smog. I know the cats can be expensive but its something you gotta do. I would shop around at muffler shops to get prices

Hey.
Thank you for your time.
It is breaking inside according to subaru's diagnosis.

Haha , no moving parts to break , just pay a exorbitant amount whatever they say .
My uncle owns a smog station and told me they can be cleaned out .
