Re: [DML] Catalytic converter

I was asked to "de-cat" one car, and discovered that the cat had indeed 
been gutted in the past. I went ahead and fitted a stainless bypass and 
the owner immediately reported improved fuel economy. As someone who did 
lots of motorway miles, I doubt this was just a placebo effect :-)

This, I'm told has the same effect of a bypass pipe, but may just add the slightest of echos during hard acceleration. This is all second hand information ;)
