2005 NISSAN ALTIMA
What are the ramifications of not replacing the catalytic converter?
The dealer quoted a price of $1200 -> $1500.

Defective catalytic converter will suffocate the engine and reduce the volumemetric efficiency in other words the engine is not breathing properly. You can use a test pipe as you wish but come state emission inspection you have to put one On.
Why $$$$ for Cat-maybe bcuz what its made of Platinum and Palladium
