    Gee that sounds like easy as pissing up a rope. Think I will stick with my 4.0 here.-now that I know I was actually looking at at it all this time, it's among the easiest I have ever done.

    Ok. So cats replacement is on the agenda. What else would you do to redress these issues or pretty much my OP covers that? What is the risk of driving with bad cats if I don't get them changed right away but later if I first address these other issues then cats later?
