Is it emissions testing, visual inspection for you guys with states that require it?
Or the law saying you have to have one? No one is going to pull you over to check.
I think it is that willingness to knowingly do something illegal, my state law is no modification or removal of emissions devices, but there is no inspection here, that was my initial reason for wanting to do it, and for some social reasons with people that I am around, but the more i look at the best way to do it, and how much power it would rob, it stops being a cost effective performance, and so going catless is probably the best choice.
