Gutting the Cat on a VR might gain you a couple of HP if you are lucky. Leave it alone, stop gutting catalytic converters, and enjoy the fact that you have air to breathe that isn't completely toxic yet.
I have a TT SS cat-back.
My catalytic converter has been rattling, so I think it's about ready to explode. I don't really want to pay some insane amount of money for a replacement, especially if I can gain a few HP or MPG by removing it.
I don't drive the car alot, so hopefully I won't pollute more then my lawnmower.
go to a exhaust shop.. have them wled in a 2.5 inch test pipe. got mine done for 30 bucks or so. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif they can weld the 02 bung back in there too http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
gut it! i dont know how much power u gain but i know for a fact that you definintely feel it !!! yes you will not pass emissions, but that only means i will have to pay a guy a bit mroe to do it.
i have no regrets!
