How hot is hot? The cat will get hot, that'* just how it works. But if it'* glowing that'* to hot. If this is still the original cat, it may need to be replaced.

X2...A CAT that is glowing is the sign of a fire yet to happen. If you encounter this, DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR until you can get the CAT replaced. Otherwise you'll be replacing the whole car with a different one!

The good thing is changing a cat is a easy job and the cost isn't to bad. Unless you have it welded in, then the cost goes up a bit.
