we do it the right way with a tune. those of us with SCT tunes already have the rear sensors turned off by default.

He's unemployed, doesn't want to spend $50 for MIL eliminators, but wants to cut off the cats and splice in some straight tubing?

My advice is to leave the car alone unless something is broken. Being unemployed and doing car modifications are usually not a good combination.

Oh, and you are aware that the driver side cat is part of the exaust manifold, right.

I think if you research it enough you will find how to make your own MIL's for very little money.

MIL eliminator article that I copied a long time ago so that it wouldn't get lost. I never did try it myself.

I'll tell him to wait til he gets employment somewhere else dont want him to be stuck without a drivable car and I didn't know the marks had the cats as part of the manifold (he didn't know either) he just got it a couple of weeks ago.
