2001 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 178000 miles

I found out today that my ford ranger has 5 catalytic converters on it. My gosh what was ford thinking. I want to know if I can put a straight pipe with a muffler on it or do I really have to have 5 expensive converter on my ranger. Tell me that simplist way to fix this without costing over 500.00 dollars. The muffler place wants 1000.00 to fix the 3 way converters coming from the engine. PLEASE HELP

I don't think you have 5 catalytic converters-get help with a 2nd opinion or you'll be up for grabs-

BTW what's wrong here that you need all those Cats?

Yes, the ford had 5 cats on it. Why? Because it was made in califorina. It had califorina emissions system on it. Found a trusted muffler place and he showed them to my husband. Don't every buy anything made in califorina!
