Theoretical Questions About Straight-pipe

Lets say that theoretically I just straight piped a 2001 7.3

Theoretically, the Catalytic Converter is gone.

In this very theoretical and obviously not real situation, what's the worse that can happen?

Depends where you live. Federaly it is illegal in all 50 states to alter or remove any emission system or components. States where cats are required, you could be stopped by law enforcement for modified exhaust (if its noticable or loud) and if the LEO looks and sees no cat you could be cited and possibly sent to a smog refferee. So if you live in a state with limited regulations you are hypothecically ok but if you live in a state like mine (ca) you could be hypothetically screwed. Good luck with your hypothetical dillema.

Well, my father has owned a 92 ranger that hasn't had a catalytic converter on it for years (Don't own it now.) Never had any trouble with it, but I don't remember if he had someone inspect it, or a friend just sign off on it. Truck's not too loud, nor does it really roll any coal (Not sure if a tuner will change that much.) I suppose we'll see what happens down the road.

The worst that could happen is while this person is removing the catalytic converter, he catches a glimpse of his wife and the neighbor having secks. While he's distracted a jagged metal pipe breaks free and pierces his eye socket thus causing an autonomous muscle response knocking the truck off of its jackstand allowing it to roll backwards crushing him and he dies a horrible painful death.

I don't have a catalytic converter on my truck and I lived....
