Hi,

I've had the catalytic converter stolen off my 2008 Kia Sportage LX (2.7L).

I'm wondering if anyone has had experience replacing the catalytic converter with a straight pipe?
Are there issues with the oxygen sensors on this specific model afterwards?

Here is where the cat was cut out:
Tire Wheel Car Vehicle Automotive tire


Thank you for any help.

For anyone that comes across this with the same question.

I had a shop weld in a straight pipe.
I've driven the car about 100km since and haven't noticed any difference. The sound is about the same.
There is no check engine on.
Good luck and may those that steal cats stub their toes every day for the rest of their lives!
