Sounds like since you replaced the fuel mixture unit you need to adjust the mixture screw. The motor is running too rich if the convertor glows. Could also be caused by one or more bad injectors.

I noticed last night that the catalytic converter glows red hot after a few minutes of running.  I know they run hot, but not cherry red.  The O-2 sensor is close and might be affected by this. I don't know if that would cause my restart problem or not.
