almost finished my exhaust, manifolds next!
so i just about got my exhaust done, dynomax ultra flow welded muffler, stock tail left on, not worried about that, today i got around to taking my catalytic converters out, only had 3 to take out so it wasn't too much work, 1 straight pipe welded in place, another with a 45 degree bend and welded in place... just got the damn leaky manifolds with broken studs left! ****!! hate them cuz these ones are pretty burried in the fender well to get at,
but i've noticed with the cats out, it almost feels like i've lost some torque at take off, but have a bit of a gain once i hit higher rpm's, does that sound right? i used to barely need to touch the gas to hear the tires squeal a bit, but now i gotta hit the peddle to the floor to feel the power, but once i get going i can feel the power almost like a power boost around 2500 - 3500rpm's. seems kind of odd i thought i woulda gained more torque at take off without the cats in there
especially since the left side one was all melted and probably not working as well as it should have, i'm thinking the computer might have been reprogramed in some ways cuz my check engine light hasn't come on yet and in my guess should have came on with the left side only having half of 1 cat which was melted in there
