Re: [DML] Catalytic converter

I believe that in the US it's still a federal offense for a 
commercial shop to remove the catalytic converter, regardless of age. 
Not that anyones looking, but this is the sort of thing that 
disgruntled employees or customers will turn complaints in on so you 
will have a hard time finding someone to do it. 

What you do in your own backyard is a different story - it's between  
you, your concience, and anyone you eventually sell the car to in a 
state where they still do testing/inspection.
