The point of the cat is legal and environmental. No, you can't cut it off. Use a performance unit instead.

A cat helps reduce the harmful emissions in your exhaust. It'* a very necessary item.

Ya know..just bring money..I'll sell you a great running 95 with all kinds of power.

What'* the connection between the cat and the FWI? Nothing.

Back on topic, please.

I'm eagerly anticipating pics.

I believe the IAT should be down in the filter to read the coolest temps possible...

Jay..hold off on the pics..we'll pretty it up if necessary before.
