Re: [DML] Cat removal


As far as the EPA is concerned, you can't change anything on your car  
even if it makes the emissions cleaner without having it tested for  
cleaner emissions.  Have you ever seen what leaded gas does to cats?   
I run 110 leaded in my race car and have a test pipe for when I am at  
the track.  When you modify a car for "Track Use Only" it no longer  
is intended for street or highway.  But once you go that route, you  
no longer can register the vehicle for use on any roads or drive the  
vehicle on any roads.

Now lets see what the club racers would do if the EPA came down on  
all of there modified cars.
