A good performance cat should run you in the 50-80 buck range....not including installation. They're not as spendy as they used to be. Good luck.

Funny you mention about the *&* Headers. We here at ADTR are now a dealer. I was thinking of offering the headers for $300 shipped to your door, what do ya think people'*?

Sorry bud. Our valve sequence is a bit off kilter for a Series 2 header to fit. Hector has an idea or two for us, but it'll take some development time.

Default Removing my catalytic Converter

[email protected]!! $300 to my door, there is no way that i'm not getting them now. I just have to wait till about May to make sure I have enough money for insurance and any unexpected suprises. I will definatley get back to you then if not sooner. That'* like stealing them compared to when headers use to be $700+ for the series II.

Man I'm excited now. lol.

Your t-stat should be at your door soon, I will check your tracking #. Yeah I need to double check the $300 to your door would be in the lower 48 states, Hawaii/Alaska and Canada will be a little more.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it illegal to remove your catalytic converter Not that I would really care or report you or anything (it would be rather hypocritical after the things I have done).

I am asking because one of my friends does a lot of car mechanic stuff to make money when he'* not in school and someone I know asked him to remove the catalytic converter on his truck. My freind refused because he said he could be prosecuted for doing it. Maybe this is just in Michigan.

Some states require (if not all) emmission control on vehicles including catalytic converters. In MN it is Illeagal to drive a vehicle without one, technically speaking. There are loop holes but they generally apply to cars older than 197x somethin'.

It'* a federal law. If your car came with a Cat, you can't remove it.
