Spotlighting Nissan & Infiniti Catalytic Converters

Many of the Nissan/Infiniti exhaust systems are 2 – 4 cat systems and that is to help reduce pollution and keep the engines running cleaner and more efficient. In the past, we have seen Infiniti/Nissan do a poor job of having serial numbers listed on them. In the mid-2010’s we started to see more serial numbers listed and stamped on these units which started to help the prices become more accurate. Sometimes you may see a serial number stamped on the end of one of the pipes and we have learned that that number rarely runs as a properly graded cat.

These units have high value in many cases and asking the team at RRCats about where to find serial numbers will help increase your pricing many times. Nissan/Infiniti  Catalytic converters fall into the foreign category and then have multiple subcategories these are:

Depending on what part of the exhaust system they are on will depend on what category and also the different makes and models of the cars.

How Do I Identify A Nissan or Infiniti Catalytic Converter?

Typically the cats from Nissans and Infinitis are common about having the Nissan name on the converter that is how you know you have a Nissan/Infiniti OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Catalytic Converter. While this may not always be true-looking for any type of identifying marks or numbers will always help to figure out what types of cats that you have. 

If you’re not sure, you can always send us pictures.

The serial numbers are typically right below the Nissan name and are made up of both letter and numeric sequences. 

Examples of some of the Serial Numbers found on Nissan:

  • X3
  • X5
  • JA3L5

Some Nissan/Infiniti catalytic Converters have shields and those usually look like a cheese grater (see picture below).
