Why did you keep cats? Do you have emissions testing?
I don't see any reason to spend the extra money on cats. Plus I like not having them, kinda flipping the finger at California.

I know right... I really have to ride there ass the first time. They just don't believe I am faster. Whats even more amazing is I take them in the corners. The darn GT3 will pull me in the straights.
