Cats are only good umm never Jaja, yes louder, fail emissions- if you have em in your state, to my memory the only code i've seen on a buds tuner was for o2 sensors, cat-less none the less with an x pipe

Taking off catalytic converters will increase performance by allowing fumes to escape faster. You will also get a huge increase of sound, in my opinion I love the sound of a cat-less V8, especially mustangs.

Taking your catalytic converters off is ILLEGAL. There are actually strict laws, but never really enforced.
Your check engine light will come on.
You'll smell the fumes from the exhaust. ( a tune will reduce this a lot)
You won't be able to pass emissions. Especially if they have a sniffer.

A SCT tuner can turn off the CEL
There are also plugs that trick your O2 sensors into thinking they are hooked up to cats
If you got the $$ and a trustworthy hook up.. It's possible to pass emissions, but it's still illegally done.
What also some people do is save their OEM Midpipe and every inspection just swap the cats back on.

True, I don't have a tuner and I'm always thinking about getting one but my plan since the beginning was getting all the bolt ons I can get and then get it dyno tuned..
