No cat on a NA will likely KILL low end torque. It'* happened before. Besides, it'* illegal to run without a cat. In all 50 states and most of canada.

The fines are horrible. I run cats on both of my cars. Stock on the 95, and a hi-flow on the 93. I felt the difference on the 93, however, the cat I replaced was shot.

Thanks Bill, I'm not going to run with no cat, I have to much of a guilty conscience for that. I thought I had read that it would kill the low end torque, just wantin to make sure.


Thanks again,


Tim

Got mine installed on Friday. Heavy throttle upon takeoff will emit a very low grawl. Other than that it actually seems quiter in the cabin and for some reason the idle has become even smoother. I didn't expect any real gain from it but suprisingly it helped topend a bit. I do believe my old cat was clogged though.

Hey thanks Jr. I went and checked the site out, what part number will I need??

I checked all the cat pages and couldn't find the one I need for the price you listed.

Anywho, Thanks for the help.

Hey Guys! Are these cats bolt-on or do they have to be welded in place?
