I was putting my exhaust pipe back on the headers and I dropped a bolt into the exhaust and I believe it is located in the converter. I have tried to retrieve it with a claw and a magnet. NO luck. My question, What happens to the converter it I leave it in there? Thanks for your help.
Do you
have the same problem?

Thanks for the heads up. I am going to put it all back together and see what happens. I am going to replace the converter, just sooner than later, because I plan on converting to dual exhaust.
