If you have race headers, why keep the cats?

you wont pass a visual inspection, but you might could pass a sniffer test. with that being said i would suggest either 1. not worring about it and keeping the stock system to swap back whenever testing is needed, or 2. swap over to a shorty header/ high flow cat option. but i am no expert on this topic as i live in an area with no emission testing, so i choose to just stick with my race header and blast all the cars around me with my loud exhaust!
