Clogged catalytic converter or muffler but most likely the converter.

Let it run and see if check engine light comes on and see what code it gives u. It could also be ur timing chain. But when u get the code, it'll narrow it down

I let it run for about 2 hours and still no check engine came on and no codes

So I need to reinstalled a new catalytic converter or could I just clean it out
