Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Please allow me to ask a few questions so I can better help resolve your concern. Does the engine misfire all of the time or just under certain conditions? At idle or under a load? Do you know which cylinder is misfiring? Do you know the code in the computer?

At idle have not drive it don't want to damage new cat

I agree. Dont run the engine too long as you can cause damage to the new converter. Do you know which cylinder is misfiring? If not, this is the next step.
