[DML] Re: Cat removal

The shop would not be installing it,  I would.  And as far as 
getting in trouble. I have heard plenty of talk of empty cats and 
converter deletes on this site, tamirs site, and others.  I am also 
certain that exotic engine swaps are "illegal" in some form at some 
point during the install.  My question was not about the legality of 
such a modification,  only the mechanical ramifications. There are 
no illegal modifications to my car as it sits, and I doubt merely 
talking about removing a 25 year old catalytic converter from a 
niche market, collector vehicle will ruffle any feathers.  But 
thanks all the same for your concern.
