no it wont, our cats don't come off.

It's like this: header : mid-pipe with cat - muffler.

Depending on his location. Maybe you already stalked him and know where he lives :p

But yea, unless you plan on cutting and welding that to your exhaust... NO.

No, actually contrary to everyone's belief even if you live in a county without emissions testing, you still must legally have a catalytic converter on your car if it came with one, and it must be the OEM one too. and it is a 10,000$ a fine without, but nobody enforces it.


Federal law says it is illegal to tamper with or modify in any way ANY emissions control device regardless of location. Federal > states.

Yea, i know it's illegal. But the fine im sure varies. And when they do exhaust tickets it's not specific to the cat, its more just that you have done some type of modification and the fine is like less then $300 here in FL at least the first time
