    So what would be the easiest way to test if my cat is plugged up?

    What is happening that makes you think it's bad or clogged?

    The way I tested the one on my old truck is removing the O2 sensor to see if the idle and RPMs improved. The only other things I can think of doing is taking it off, or replacing it.

    Just unbolt the front connector and if your truck runs better with it disconnected , I would replace the Cat

    A foul rotten egg smell in the exhaust is also an indicator that the cat is plugged/failing. Sulfur/sulfides give off a rotten egg smell.
