Are you still running the converter?
If it gets plugged it will superheat and melt the contents.
This may be the cause of your fireworks.

If you guys don't have AirScare in Toronto, why not just remove the cat altogether?

we have another form of air care called an emissions test I`m asuming its much like yours in BC, the reason is to get the junk cars off the road and to clean the air of harmful gasses the auto is producing when not running in its proper fashion.

My Tercel shoots some flames. I assumed it was because i put a thrush muffler on it.It hasnt hurt it yet,besides, it looks cool at night and helps keep loosers from pulling up on my bumper at stoplights!

During the summer my carb was running insanely rich and shooting more flames than a fireplace. I was leaning out my door while backing up on a trail and let my hand hang near the sidepipe and BOOM no more knuckle hair and some real nice burns on my hand.
