Quoting Popular Toyota Scrap Catalytic Converters

Posted: May 26, 2022

Welcome to This Week’s Cat Chat!

This week we are going to look at Toyota Catalytic Converters. One of the most popular questions we get is:

How do I know this is an OEM Catalytic Converter from my Toyota?

Toyota does a nice job of stamping its logo onto its catalytic converters. They have two logos, one is the traditional Toyota logo we see in the states the other is the Japanese logo. With Toyota making and selling more cars in 2021 than any other car manufacturer, we may be seeing more and more catalytic converters from these vehicles in the future. Toyota is another company that does a great job in labeling their catalytic converters with serial codes- and no one may do a better and easier job than Toyota does.

Many of their serial codes are no more than three total digits and most have either 2 letters and one number or two numbers and one letter. Having these serial codes either on one of the main corners of the catalytic converter or stamped on the middle of the shield will make it very hard to miss. Toyota is not a fan of pre-cats as much as other manufacturers, but their cats do pack much more punch when it comes to pricing. The Toyota cats have been found to have more PGMs inside making them more valuable on a piece-by-piece basis on average.

Check out the video below on how to find the serial numbers on Toyota catalytic converters & some tricks on how to bring that serial number out.
