pros: slight HP gain (3-5hp), exhaust gets louder and will probably shoot flame.

cons: Exhaust gets louder and will probably shoot flames. Exhaust will smell really bad and in California, running without a cat is a $1200 fine regardless of the legality of the engine.

it's illegal (depending on where you live this could be a major problem), you'll be helping to make our environment even worse than it already is, your car will be louder

on the other hand it will be faster

that's probably all you wanted to hear, fuck emissions and the environment. just don't have any kids or they'll hate you for ruining the world for them :gaylaugh

you could always get a 3" high flow cat as another option.

damn right! my bronco runs so rich i can light the exhaust with a stick lighter. no matter where you are if your car came equipped with a cat and theres not one on it when the cops deside to be dicks your gonna get a ticket.

Let say you have an aftermarket exhaust manifold, down pipe, test pipe, 3 inch cat back with this muffler


Can you shoot flames out or will that muffler make it harder to do so? Also can you shoot flames with a high flow cat or will that just melt it??

My advice. Be careful running open cat (no cat)

IF someone rats you out to EPA, they will recieve 10% or somthing like that out of your fine (1200.00 bucks) as a reward :)

any shop who deals with your car (ethically speaking) must turn you in or they risk of getting shut down.

Do it at your own risk or get owned
