what could be wrong
Loud exhaust noise hood the hood where cats are
and lack of power on hard acceleration and floor
gets hot. Could it be bad cat
sure...pluged....leaking.... replace..you dont need a factory one either...
If the exhaust is very loud, you have a leak in the exhaust and possibly the hot exhaust is leaking and blowing on the floor making it hot. Get if fixed before your lungs suck in a bunch of exhaust and you become ill. Might be the catalyst and might be a bad gasket or damaged pipe.
