If $150-200 is too expensive for you, please just get out of the car game. That's cheap as hell.

Also you're going to have a really difficult time finding a shop that'll remove a cat for you, well unless you know someone of course.

A tip on a way to get around it is to simply show up at the shop open header that way they aren't removing a cat since it's only illegal for them to remove one.

Lol , your trying to tell me about emissions because I know removing the cat is illegal but I changed my mind cause I don't want my car smelling like butt.

It's not illegal in Iowa to run no cat since we have no emissions tests here, but other states it is. I know quite a few people who run no cat, but it might stink. Also, I'd go to Iowa Muffler.

I've ran no cat for years... What do you mean by it "smells" doesn't smell any different then it did before I took it off?

And if you thought Kraft was too expensive I cant wait to hear what you think of Iowa Brake and Mufflers price! lolololololol

You must be high or sum if you can't smell butt coming out from the exhaust since there is no cat, it ain't combusting with the oxygen so it's just flowing out , and master, I don't rely on my parents like you do, oh, did you take off your cat when you first got your frs ,

I've never noticed a difference in the smell, and if there really is a difference it must not be anything major if I couldn't tell. I've never heard of anyone complain saying "I took my cat out and regret it because now it smells :'("

Maybe you should get mommy and daddy to pay for your stuff cuz from the sounds of it you clearly can't afford it on your own. Also yes, I removed my cat weeks ago. Was one of the very first things I took off the car.

All i know is that for the price you mentioned... They are going to do crush bends. I dont think that will do much over stock. Just gut the cat slap the muffler on and call it a day. Unless you really want bigger piping, then order obx off of ebay for that price. At least theirs are mandrel bends.

I know me too... But oh well, initially thought I would have some fun then got this idea to see if I could straighten some things out around here locally. I don't think it's doing much good. If this meet thing falls on its face like I think it's going to because this community has no idea how to work together then I'm just going to give up on this place.
