I don't know a cop on the face of this planet that will bend over to check your cat
If anyone here does , I got speak to the cop , get me his number.
You gotta be a bored SOB to go under somebodies car to check for a pipe. Half of the cops don't even know what a cat is let alone look for one.

Now I'm getting it redone from the CAT back--all new.
I have heard cars where the cat'* were punched verses replaces with straight pipe and the sound is differnet. The sound can get evened out over the coarse of the exhaust to make a nice smooth rumble where as if you punch the cat it will alow for more distinctive sound to go along with the exhaust valves.

Just a little food for thought....

Oh my lord! Exhaust redone from downpipe to rear. New hi-flow cat, no more resonator, muffer inlets and outlets are correct this time, and brand new 2 1/2 inch piping through and through. This baby sounds like a bat outta hell when I nail it!

I think the only time a cop would look for a cat is if u happen to be a spectator at an illegal drag race. If your caught cops will be able to prove your intention by your mods and will lessen your chance of fighting a ticket. I beleive also if u have mods your car gets taken at a drag race. not sure though.
