    How do I gut my cats out ?

    Whats the best way to do this ? Is there any hp gain from just doing this ? Would I be better off taking it to a shop and having it done ?

    No shop should do this for you since it is illegal. You have to stick something (steel pipe) in them and break everything out. I'm sure you will gain some power.

    Then it is your choice. It's easy enough to do by yourself. But, since it is so easy it should be pretty cheap for them to do. Your choice of who does it.
