Cleared the codes or cleared/removed/punched out the catalyst from the convertors?

Yeah, if you blew out the catalytic converter your car should be faster… sounds to me like your catalytic converters have come apart inside of the exhaust, and if that's the case then your exhaust is blocked

CCs can not be "cleared" you will need a new one(s) and your exhaust might have to be cleaned or replaced-

"glowing red hot" catalytic converters should be replaced.
