    The cutting of the cats

    After a whole day of waiting for the snow/rain to stop, it finally cleared up and was a brisk 45* out. I started installing my new exhaust system. As the subject suggests, I am deleting the cats. I already have one off, and have the new Summit Performance Oval muffler installed, and it sounds sweet! It has a nice rumbe at idle, and when you rev it, it quiets down, which is what I was looking for. It is actually louder than when I had the Glasspacks + Cats installed. The rest will be finished tomorrow, if it is still nice outside.

    BTW, would anyone like a pair of used Glasspacks? They have around 1000 Miles on them, and are still in good shape.

        It's all clamped up for now, I don't have access to a welder at the moment, lol. I cut the cats off right behind where they are welded to the pipe coming from the manifolds.

        Scott, how much do you want for the headers?

            What do you think is fair? I don't really care about the money, otherwise they will be just more stuff I don't need taking up room I don't have!

            BTW these are 30" 2 1/8" inlet/outlet. The paint is flaking on them, but otherwise are in good shape.
