I don't think it would do you much good putting it at the rear. If anything, it would cause you to lose power as the exhaust flow at the rear is not as strong as when it leaves the engine. Furthermore, cat only converts CO into CO2. Carbon monoxide is an odourless gas so it would not make the smell go away.

Yes, you can put at the rear. All WRC cars has their catalyic converter installed at the end of the exhaust system

Wiki
"Many vehicles have a close-coupled catalysts located near the engine's exhaust manifold. This unit heats up quickly due to its proximity to the engine, and reduces cold-engine emissions by burning off hydrocarbons from the extra-rich mixture used to start a cold engine."

WRC cars won't be use for short trips like a road car (go near by mamak etc.) so the cat cons will almost always be at operational temperature since the cars are usually at full throttle..so they can put it in the rear.


the glowing red thing is the cat con.

Take too long to warm up or it won't even warm up. Thus polluting.
Purpose is to burn 'unburned fuel'. Would be a waste if those fuel you bought aren't being burnt. :rofl:
