Hate to say it but abandon ship now. If it was REALLY flooded its gone. Like others have said more and more issues will appear most likely.

Cats are fine. Automotive cats do not operate at higher than 950, if your into the 1000's your smoking a cat. Water wont due anything. Any residue will burn off the first extended WOT run you do.

If you buy back, take apart every electrical connection and buy a tube of dielectric grease. Grease every connection.

Sorry to hear about the bad news

I believe CATS can operate at higher temps.

I would also take a look at the heat and O2 sensors.

As Roman pointed out, anything with an electrical connector should be unplug, cleaned, some WD 40, allowed to dry and dielectric grease applied.
