    I don't know, does this looks clogged? Probably.

    It's a ceramic honeycomb. Looks muck like the aluminum diffuser in a MAF, but longer.

    Clogging is easier to diagnose with the cat removed, so you can shine light through it, but the cat is welded to the rest of the system on the OPs car, so cutting welding would be required to check it "correctly".

    Yes, it was the cat. I cut it off today and when I shook it, the front honeycomb was rattling inside, the insulating mat around it was broken down and all the trash clogged the rear one, I could barely see any light through it. I had my brother weld a piece of pipe in place of CAT and the car now runs like never before.
    Thanks everyone.

    When you replace it, use a GOOD replacement. Cheaper ones tend to set inefficiency codes.
