Screw cats....unless you live in Cali...no cats sounds Soooooooooo much meaner than a catted exhaust. Ditch the cats and get that mean sound that everyone loves...[>:]

It's illegal to have a catless midpipe anywhere. Federal law states you must have all factory emissions equipment installed and operational, it's up to your state to regulate it.
