1. They are following the law...cat removal is a federal no-no, and 2. they lied its almost impossible to lose power from cat removal..there is a small exception, but that not with standing I doubt u fall in that group.

Solution...get the "right personal" to remove it...and 2. make it so u can place it back for inspection.

Going catless won't hurt performance, just the environment.

Going catless will not create any sudden significant increase in performance.
It will create a very different and not necessarily pleasant exhaust note, and will provide a constant and surprisingly strong smell of raw gas.
And will also cause a continuous check engine light.

All can be prevented.

res xpipe
gas mask (lol JK have to live with it)
Tune

Actually the smell isn't that bad, but noticable

Car just like exhaling better without. IMO

I do have a sensitive nose .
But I've seen a few posts from guys with true straight pipes that have regretted the noise level.

If Amarr is "straight" w/cats, he might be surprised how much sound supression they provide once they're gone.

I hate emissions. Politicians are what's ruining the environment.

Good point I missed the straight pipes. yeah some with standart exhaust find the extra air with LT and no cats too much. It is a very fine line and all up to personal preference, but sound supression and HP aren't good bed fellows.

OP if you ever find yourself in the Tampa area I would be glad for you check out my car if it helps.
