Icon5 Loss Power / Annoying sound for a Gas Engine just for uphill or overtaking uphill

Hi Experts.. Need some of your options and suggestion..

I have a Honda CR-V 2002 4x2 A/T

Problem: everytime I go uphill or loaded or not loaded the car seems to now sound the way it should be and I can feel that it has a loss of power overtaking uphill. And the sound is not like a sound of gas engine. we'll it's too annoying. So when I was backing up to my garage I got a chance to record the sound.

Video Details:

First part of the video.. I am in Drive with hand Brake and Brake and then I rev the engine sounds like it's all coming from the catalytic converter and it's very noisy.

Mid part of the video.. I am in Neutral with hand brake and brake press then rev it the engine and sound perfectly fine.

So I am suspecting I have a hole in my exhaust sytem or maybe air leak in my headers etc and 70-80% chance the catalytic converter is the culprit.. Here's the link to the video and please let me know.



I have a friend who has a honda crv 1st gen and his catalytic converter is just sitting at his garage and he offered it to me for free. Can I weld it up into my honda crv 2nd gen pipes and use the catalytic converter without any problems?

Thanks! And Looking forward hearing from you.
