Well that & premature Cat failure. & probably codes that you'll have to get used to seeing. I guess you don't get smog inspected & if you ever sell it, that will just be thier problem (although the sale wouldn't be legal in at least Ca.) Caveat emptor (Let the buyer beware)! I really doubt any gain, if in fact their is one, is worth the effort. Just don't forget to mention the alteration in future posts so "JCMS"
is aware of it. It'll save you guys some time.
