    Cats

    Ok I'm putting a set of pacesetter headers and y-pipe on my ss. Should I get rid of the cats or no? Would I see a big difference. Sorry I'm not really an expert if it sounds dumb.
    Any opinions appreciated.
    Thanks

    well cats and long tube headers are kinda a moot point, so I would say get rid of them to keep the install easy, as for gains they will be minamal. CAts havea come a long way in the last 10 years.

    I think it depends on the emission/inspection laws where you are at.

    No expert but I hear a lot of good things about Random Tech cats. Their site has a huge write-up about cat techology and theory, Why their's are better because of how many bricks they use to dissapate heat quicker, thus resulting in more efficient emissions and hp than other high flow cat companies out there. They are expensive (like $175 a pice for 3") but if I decide to go with cats, then they will be the ones...and I am usually a cheap bastard. You get what you pay for in this case.

    you wont gain much if anything by running no cats a good set of metal substrate will flow very well
    over here it is a 20k fine for running no cats
    i imported my 3" metal cats from the US cost me $89.95USD each
    sounds a s@#t load better then the STD cats
    you may get some fumes from running no cats as well
