Sounds like headers but the pipes are too small to give it a good growl.

Hey boss, I don't live in an area that is anally restrictive on emissions. What would be the downside of removing that last cat and running 2.5" from the "y" out and the Flowmaster 40 right about where the muffler should actually exist? All types of e-control crap of will she run just fine...for a 3,0 that is!
