    Default cat or no cat?

    i'm trying to decide if i should have a cat welded onto the midpipe or just keep it straight piped. what do you guys think?

    Why would you want to put a cat IN?
    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    So if leave it out, you have NO cat at all?

    If it were me, I'd get one, give a little performance for some environmental peace of mind.

    Screw the cat, well, not literally, unless of course you're into that stuff, or if you're Leo

    for now i'm going to leave the system catless. too poor to afford a decent high flow cat. probably get a cheap resonator welded into the midpipe next week to keep the noise down. i guess i'll find out how loud my car really is on saturday.

    better check the lawbook again. there is no law that says you have to have a cat on in alberta.
