"cat swap"???

engine/exhaust gurus:

I'm currently runining an SPM catted downpipe to a Eurojet resonated CBE.... (see sig below)

I've been toying with the idea of swapping the cat-section(both modular) for a test pipe section, just to see any/if differences.....

1- all sound no "go"?
2- are there any benefits (other than louder "growl", I'm assuming) power/torque wise
3- will I throw a code, or will my APR stage II tune(already) take care of that?

will my loud, deeper "SHARTS" return?

cheers

Don't forget the extra fumes. Some people are sensitive to that.

I have a catless SPM pipe that I won't be using. Brand new. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.
