Re: [DML] Cat Remvoval

When I first bought my car it had an exhaust gasket leak. While  
getting that fixed it was discovered the cat was plugged up. At the  
time I couldn't really afford a new one, so the shop just hollowed it  
out and put it back on. Years later when I needed an exhaust gasket  
leak fixed again, I had a new cat installed.

Anyway, during the time I had a hollowed out cat, the car still  
passed PA emissions without any trouble.

I didn't notice any performance differences.
