i had them leave the connection from the headers to the cat as a clamp, so i could unbolt it if wanted to for dyno tests.

Wait.

I will do it when I have the money, but I have a lot of other mods that come first...probably by next winter. I can't wait...I don't like the sound of my car when you really give it some gas...it sounds...anorexic.
