i want to hollow out my cats because if i get an ory, i cant get it inspected, if i gut my cat will it hurt anything at all?

It won't really hurt anything, but it isn't good for the exhaust flow to have an open chamber in the piping. It won't sound as good, and you can actually lose some power - believe it or not. The car will also smell like burnt fuel, since there are no catalysts to clean the exhaust gases.

Dude- the best thing to do is not gut the cat, just replace the cat with a straight pipe, otherwise, just get a highflow-
