What is this thing... - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Very true. There aren't but about 4 or 5 cars on this Forum that might benefit from that. Everyone else that tried it lost low-end torque.

And it'* illegal in all 50 States.

I didn't see a torque loss going from a highflow cat to a straight pipe.

Then you are a rare exception indeed.

I did. For the short period of time I ran without a cat on the SLE, and there'* a dozen more here also. Including those like me that got our bottom end torque BACK when we put the cat back in. One just a couple weeks ago because of our advice.
