so, i just got done with a head gasket repair, put everything together, put the fluids in and fired it up, to my surprise there is a odd noise coming from the tailpipe almost like it sounds like theres water in it and there is white smoke coming out of the tailpipe, also the engine is idleing a little rough and it feels like it wants to die. Was doing some research and am fairly certain its the catalytic converter, just want to know if anyone else has ran into this problem after a head gasket repair and if you think it could also be something else, or a combo of problems. oh, also want some advice as to how much it should cost to replace the catalytic converter in a shop, i would do it myself but i dont have a welder, thanks.
