I read on Random Technology Website

Quote:
Under Federal EPA regulation, replacement of original catalytic converters is allowed only if the original converter(s) is missing, or the vehicle has more than 50,000 miles or is at least five years old and the need for a replacement has been established and documented, or a local inspection program has determined the existing converter is in need of replacement.
So I guess if you remove your standard CAT your are essentially breaking the law. In texas inspections are done annually. Not sure if it is worth the risk. I guess I will stick with the Factory SVT Cat and Borla Cat Back Exhaust.
