Default gutted my cat.

My original plan was to straight pipe it so I could get the cash for the cat but after I bought the pipes I realized I have a oval where the Y pipe meets the cat. So I just gutted it but had to go up to oriellys to get some extra bolts to bolt it back up. I drove there with out a cat... I have never heard a ranger sound so frikken funny and loud. It sounded sick. I would rev it at people walkin down the street and some of them would jump cause it was so damn loud. I shook my house when I pulled in the gruage my ma said. I still got the pipes... what's stoppin me from yankin my muffler?

Yea, back when I drove a beater Buick boat I had my exhaust snap off before the cat and muffler. That little V6er sounded like a damn tractor... I got pulled over so many times, and all the cops would do was look underneath, see that I had a muffler under there and let me go. They didn't even care to check to see if it was connected. But yea, I would definatly not risk it, because they DO check and it gives them one more excuse to pull you over and harass you.

On my old f150, i ran just straight pipes. once and a while a cop would look at me at a stop light or something, but as long as i didnt stomp on it while in a crowded area or in traffic i never had a problem with it.
