It's going to be a bad Cat but not because it's plugged. it just chemically, is not doing it's job any more.

What sucks is it comes with two cats on it but only one is bad but to replace the one you have to replace both and that cost 400.00 but i guess thats cheaper then a new motor ''thanks for your help

That's cheap. the dealer gets a lot more than the exhaust shops.
