If you have a lack of power, it is not a good idea to put highway mileage (high RPMs) on your vehicle. It can clog your fuel injectors and damage your engine.
There are two types of catalytic converter damage. One is the fact the chemicals inside the converter are worn causing your vehicle to not exhaust clean air. The second is a clogged catalytic converter which will 'choke' the engine down not allowing it to breathe properly. The second is a drivability/engine damage concern. A clogged converter will not allow the engine to breathe properly and will cause damage. Symptoms will include a lack of power (especially at higher RPMs) or a general weakness in the performance of the motor.
