    Here is the deal guys. I am gettin a full exhaust done on monday. Custom 2.5" piping with an 18" flowmaster resonator and an obx-r b10 univ. muffler. I also have a set of Megan 4-1 Header coming in soon. My friend suggests for me to get an new cat, preferably a high flow cat, because if i don't, its gonna restrict my airflow by alot. Is this true? I figure that it would a little, but i didn't know it would be that much. How much will it restrict, and will it block some of my power output?

    Help is greatly appreciated.

    I dont think so since most performance exhaust remove the cats....
    Be sure to check if the fines for not having a cat. I'm not sure if this applies everywhere, but what I've heard that if you get cought without it it's a $1000 fine for you and a $10000 fine for the mechanic that does it.

    Some may say that you won't get cought, but I say plan for the worst, hope for the best...
    Wait wait!!! I am not eliminating the cat!! I am keeping the stock cat on there and i wanted to know if its going to slow me down or not. If so, then by how much?

    For newer vehicles, the stock CATs are already higher flowing than what older cars had. You should be ok but if you opt to go with a "high flow CAT," the difference would be negligible.
