      baby steps. if everyone put it back in there and we actually obeyed the laws that are written and passed for a reason, it would be alot cleaner on our little dirt ball in space.

      oh, i know, im just saying, its better if your choose to do it, and the rest of the people on here too. i mean, think about it, if all us euro guys had cats, and the ricers had cats again, thats pretty much everyone out there except cycles and track spec cars.

      but, idk, and i dont really see a point at this point. there is enough C02 in the air that its causing climate change faster than anyone thought possible, so we just need to be ready when the **** hits the fan.

      I have a catless DP, i regret it now. The smell has gotten on my nerves once it starts to seep its way into the cabin..

      Bumping old a$$ thread.
      Has this guy or anyone actually dynoed a stg 2 car with catless downpipe and then catted?

      I just put a 200 cell magnaflow from 42dd on my 3" dp and could definitely notice some mid-top end losses.

      The butt-dyno is really capable of feeling a loss of maybe 3-6hp? I have my doubts.

      Maybe it SOUNDS different up top now, and youre linking the lack of audible "power" to real power?

      Not trying to be a jerk - but I don't think you could actually notice that small change in power.
