black smokes and debris comes out exhaust

im new here.cant figure out whats wrong w/ my 1998 ranger xlt 3.0 5 speed.just had a used 3.0 put in and it still was and still is running rough.not street reliable.black smokes very badly and when i push the accelerator it shoots out black carbon or debris.told it might be the cat converters honeycomb stuff coming out.loss of power between shifts.it just runs as if the truck is being held back.what if i take the cat. coverters off?any suggestions would greatly help.thanks
