You can pick up a free flow cat from ZZ performance at a good price. Just have the old one cut out and the new one welded in.

Is this something you can feel in the steering wheel when it happens? Could be a binding tie rod end.

If you have a cracked plug wire, it can jump to ground, and that will make the engine run bad, and misfire. Mist the plug wires with water at night and then turn off the lights. If you see blue flashes your jumping to ground. You will need to correct that.
