Just reading about you Catalytic Converter problem, is that a common problem? I have the 2019 I just purchased new, looks just like yours. Do you know how it got clogged?

According to reviews by owners, the catalytic convertor clogging is a common issue. Mine was destroyed when I used high test gasoline and octane booster while drag racing. It was recommended by many to replace the system with a high flow exhaust. I did and it runs better too.

I highly doubt high octane fuel caused your problem. What octane booster did you run? Also was the truck tuned for higher octane fuel? If not you had no performance increase, just a lighter wallet.

108 Octane booster and 92 octane gasoline. I ran several runs on the strip then on the way home (hour and a half drive) it started chugging and bucking.
