Question Just Headers?

Inquiring minds want to know what would happen if you take the cat & down pipe out and just run off the headers. I mean has anyone tried this and if so what are the benefits. I just don't want to screw anything up.

Do you mean running with just an open header, and nothing after it, no cat or exhaust ? Wouldn't be wise.

You can replace the cat with the FC offroad pipe, cat eliminator pipe.

hey helpsvt, who died and made you king of the spi world?

just wondering why you are so authoritative.

i do not think you would get any noise violation citations with this setup. and the only thing you really need a cat for is emmisions. so, keep your old cat, and put it back on for a few mins to get your emissions tested when you have to. then go back home and put your off road pipe back on.

why are you so intent on posting in SPI tech chat when you do not even own an SPI?
shouldnt you be posting in SVT tech chat and leaving us alone?
