VIN is W B A D B 8 9 0 4 0 7 9 9 9 0 9 3
It's a Euro, sold new in Japan.
When the engine is under load, it makes a " growling " sound which is driving me crazy. My mechanic tells me that the honeycomb material is falling apart. He said it isn't hurting the car.

Recently, fuel consumption has increased, and he said that's consistent with the catalytic converter falling apart.

I plan on keeping the car another 2 years. Any suggestions for a
"good bang for the buck " replacement part ?

One option is Bosal part no. H3000-49516. Anyone have a comment for this part, or a recommendation, with a pic ?
