If you remove the catalysts you will have an issue with engine management!!!

The lambda sensors which are pre and post catalytic converter manage the fuel ratio/level in the engine. They work on sensing between pre and post immissions !!!!!

You could install some Magnaflow high flow cats. The sound will increase to a deeper sound, and also gain some extra HP.

Good Luck!

remove catalysts?

My car has amazing sound but the drone is killing me day by day. Unless Im ready for the F1 sound with the top down, its fantastic. On the other hand, if i have a headache or need to chill down, the drone make me annoyed.
