you can get MIL eliminators. they trick the EEC into thinking the cats are working perfectly, when they aren't even there. This will not affect your primary o2 sensors which are used for fine tuning the air/fuel ratio.

other than that it's cut and weld.

uh....ok....



lets take a quick trip to the Tech Articles and read the 3rd entry from the top (MIL eliminators). This will explain what they do, which is what Greenbird said (trick the computer into thinking the cats are working fine).

there's lots of places you can get them from...
SuperCoupe Performance
Dallas Mustang

just a few off the top of my head..

hope that helps.
