    Headers not cats any problems?? HELP!

    okay so i plan on buying headers and removing the cats. i know it has the o2s before and after the cats but i heard i can remove the secondary 02s without having any problems other than a check engine light???

    Or what are some other options

    I am currently running dual cutouts rite after my cats on stock exhaust but i would like to do the headers - no cats then have the cutouts dump out.

    is there any problems i can run into by doing that?


    thanks

    this is my cts v

    Have the rear o2's shut off by a tuner, then you won't have the CEL. Or spend a bit more for high flow cats.

    Whatever color you want to call it red, maroon, burgundy, wine, who cares, how much is the wrap.

    That white should've been a factory option. Nice!
