"Off-Road" DPF and Cat

Hey guys, what's your opinions on manufacturing an "off-road" replica DPF and Cat? I was entertaining the idea of fabricating a look-alike DPF and Cat that would be open-flow, so you could, say, go to the track and brag to everyone you are still running your DPF and Cat while smoking them. (You guys know what I'm getting at here ). I'm sure there are some guys hollowing out there DPF and Cat and keeping them on their trucks for appearance, but for what these parts cost I doubt too many are doing so. Would there be any interest in a product like this if it was reasonably priced? Will I get fined and imprisoned if I make them lol ? (No really) Give me some input....

Pretty sweet setup! But I'm talking about a different purpose. To look exactly like a Cat and DPF unit for those that are "trained to check for emissions equipment" (off-road of course ) You follow me?

Hmmm....yea I'm thinking of a cat/dpf delete pipe that looks exactly like the stock cat/dpf setup. I run a machine/fabrication shop so I may try to make a few. So 2 questions: You guys think people would buy them? And would there be a legal issue trying to sell them?

I dont think that there would be an issue with selling them youd just have to advertise them as "off road only" and then let people do what they want with them, basically the same thing that alot of other companies do with similar products......

Yeah, good point...I'll keep you guys posted. I gotta pull my stock one and maybe grab a regular cat/dpf delete pipe then get working on it. I'll throw some pricing at you guys soon to get your input...
