Question

Why would it code? Wouldn't it just try to lean out the motor more? I do not know is why I am asking. I too would like to remove the inards of the Cat since they are not required on anything older than an 06 in My State.
We have no inspections ect. other than a visual if you get a Dept Of Transportation cop to stop you for some reason..

You may throw a Cat-Inefficiency Code that basically is telling you your cat is not doing its job and it needs to be replaced. It will not effect drive-ability though. You will notice a little difference, but more-so the noise levels will increase.

The issue should be resolved if u unplug the battery while u punch out the cat then when u put it all back together when u start it up that should reset the cat sensor. its the same thing when installing a cai all the companies tell u to unplug the battery

Would turn on your check engine light in a heart beat . The sensors in the exhaust before and after the catalytic convertor send signals to the computer which the computer looks for a difference . And if there isn't , the cel will come on .

^ Correct, it will throw a code. You can fix it with some non foulers, which will take the sensor out of the air flow and trick the computer into thinking your cat is working properly.

It's done all the time in the tuner scene, especially turbo cars. They usually remove the cats and replace them with test pipes/downpipes.

Here's what a non-fouler looks like. You can see how to make one here.





Some companies make test pipes that have non-foulers included.



These are nice because the non-foulers have a curve which decreases the chances of having a CEL.
