Default I put the catalytic converter in backwards

Heres me being a idiot again , my friend bought a aftermarket converter from summit racing , and after a long day at work I came home and put it in for him , then I notice that there is a inlet and outlet , and of course I have it backwards . I looked at the converter before I put it in and didn't notice a difference in either end . Anyways , my question is should I take it back apart and spin it around the right way , the engine light is off . I can't beleive I did this , try to help somebody out , and make a fool of myself .

If it is marked it may matter...but i wouldnt think it would matter...i mean its only allowing exhaust thru and not measuring emmisions...the sensors do all the work...

next time your working on his stuff and he cant see you....stop working and say "ohhh ****..." then toss a broken bolt on the ground before he comes over to see what your doing.

Right , that would get him going . the truck is a 2500 dodge ram with a hemi and when I was pulling it in the shop my wife says ( lets go 4 wheeling ) I hit the brake and tapped the gas a little and both rear tires broke loose , the truck has way more power than I would have thought . Its actully a sweet truck for a dodge .

all the magnaflows i put in dont have any direction on it. i just put those junks in which ever way. i always wondered though if it would make a difference.

mess with him back, tell him you think you left a screwdriver in the exhaust pipe or something
