Default Cat's

Hey there buddy,
I had the same exact issue with my 03 6s. It turned out to be both Catalytic Converters on the manifold. they we're both pretty in bad condition. I bought the car used so it was expected. get them inspected check out the condition of them.. If it turns out to be the Cat's. What ever you do do not buy the stock Cat's from Mazda. they sell them to you for a bout $1,000 a piece. Ebay is the way to go. I purchased both and saved about $1,300.
Goodluck with the 6.
