CAT On or Off?

When I installed my turbo-back exhaust last year, I had a left over CAT. Rather than recycle it, today I welded a 4" SS pipe to it. Now the question is, "do I put it back on, or not?"

Why would you waste the money and time welding pipe to it? Its a restriction. Throw it out!

What's you EBP before and after?

As they said, why would you start restricting your exhaust?

I agree, leave it off. If you are somewhere that does emission testing you can swap it in and out when you go test but otherwise I'd leave it out.

Leave it out. Our trucks sound wayyy too good without one to even waste the time thinking about reinstalling that
