Purchased a 2005 Magnum 5.7L. Couple of Questions...

Purchased a 2005 Dodge Magnum for about $2000 a couple of weeks ago. It needs a lot of front suspension components that have gone bad. Ordered a kit, and am planning on doing that this week. Not too bad from what I've seen on YouTube. I am also having a check engine light for codes P0420 (Catalyst System Efficiency Bank 1) and P1521 (Incorrect Engine Oil Type).

P1521 seems pretty straightforward. Oil change using correct weight oil (5w20). Any ideas on common points as to why the P0420 code goes on with these cars? Common points on the exhaust system to look at?

Also I have a spot on the top of the engine that is missing a bolt... Anyone know what this bolt is for? Here is a picture of it. Car appears to be stock; minus some aftermarket headlights that the previous owner wired in (I hate how people wire aftermarket things, they did an awful job). I'm looking into getting the shorty spark plug wires. I'm seeing the 8.2mm wires for sale. Is there a difference between the 8.2 and 10.4 Taylor shorty wires? That's really all I have thought about for minor mods. It's going to be a family car. Don't need any track/performance upgrades really lol.

Thanks all.

Unless you have exhaust leak you need a new converter. I think the photo is a blind hole. Maybe needed for truck applications.
