Had to Gut My Cats

Had my exhaust off while I was changing my clutch and decided to have a good look at the Cats.
Here is what I saw. Not pretty.
Car is louder and runs better. Glad I caught it before it got worse.

Most of the supercharged cars we did have had cat problems with them pushing back. Happens in a year or 2.

The ZL1's with mods are blowing them out left and right. Most people with ZL1s are leaving them off completely.
