Default '92 Accord EX Cat Converter Replacement Questions

1) Seems there are two types of catalytic converters for the 92 Accord EX.
How does one tell which aftermarket converter to buy as a replacement ?
Suggestions welcome.

2) Can the catalytic converter be replaced without completely dismantling
the exhaust sytem. It is bolt-in, and there appears to be a flexible mesh
cover over the solid segment of exhaust pipe on the engine side ahead of the
cat. But it looks like the post-catalytic segment needs to be lossened to
install the cat.

Turned into a big job on my '92 LX Accord. The mesh covered thing is a
flex section. It allows the side to side mounted engine to move relative
to the front to back mounted exhaust.
The cat converter on my car was hard to remove. The muffler man had to
burn off all the bolts. He had an after market one that was an exact
replacement. bob

I advise you to take it to a mechanic that you trust or a mechanic in your
town that has a good reputation. Allow him to do the work and make the
choice on a proper replacement. Don't try to do the work yourself. The job
will be much easier for a mechanic since they can place the vehicle on a
lift--that's a lot easier than crawling under your car and trying to do
the work.
