    ill test your cat. ;)

    but seriously, test pipes bolt in place of the cat. so i dont get what your asking OP, if you described your exhaust system correctly, you already should have your cat removed :what:

    a test pipe is to replace the catalitic converter but instead of having all that s**t restricting the flow its just a straight through.

    it must be nice to live in a state that you don't have to run a catalytic converter. i just put one on and i think that I have to run two. also no one will ship cat into the great state of Califoinaction.
