The BBK have SH*T fitment. The driver side is flush but jesus christ the passenger side is terrible. I had to have it welded to my xpipe so now I essentially have a O/R all in one mid pipe. Id recommend Jeggs cat deletes

I sold my stock cats for 250

I recommend a Lethal Performance off road x-pipe or off road h-pipe. No fitment problems.

Do you have state inspection? If so I would hold onto the cats for when you need them.

I would go with a full O/R X or Hpipe if you're interested in deleting the cats. Then you won't have to worry about any type of fitment issues and you can always swap the complete stock mid-pipe back in. Magnaflow & Pypes both make nice mid-pipes too!

Did you want to keep an Hpipe or do you like the Xpipes better?

Check but most states require you to have the cats on your vehicle. You also can be sued by a private party if you sell it to a third party. There was an article on here about that awhile back.

Its a federal law that they are required to be on. So if sold withiut them and the buyer finds out they can sue for their money back or make the seller purchase the stock exhaust for said vehicle no matter if its "as is" the law is the law no if ands or buts.

Federal Law. That means every state. There is no performance gain by removing the cats. They work great on Roush and Shelby Mustangs.

Not 100% accurate. If you disclose that they are missing, and inform the purchaser that the car is for off road use only, then u r in the clear. Cats r only required for street use. It would be up to them to reinstall cats if desired.

Reducing back pressure, to a certain extent, increases hp. Cats reduce back pressure and augment flow patterns, and r heavy. Same with manifolds vs headers...but that is another topic beat to death!

Wrong. I picked up close to 3/10 going with an off road H-Pipe. That's pretty significant.

No matter what, if you sell someone a car without cats then when they go to register and smog it you will be at fault. So you better hope they don't plan to drive it on the street. I've seen people get screwed over for selling a car like that saying its meant for the track, but if its still registered as a street car then you need the cats, even if its only used for the track.

This is like saying, if ur horn brakes, and u sell ur car, u r at fault when the next buyer registers his car and it won't pass road condition test.
A long as u disclose, the new owner is responsible for registering the car and the road worthiness of it. When u buy a license plate, u r responsible for its road worthiness. Not all previous owners. And it is up to u to keep it road worthy...unless u do not take it on public roads. U r agreeing to keep it legal "for street use."
Just trying to clear up a commonly misinformed topic for the OP is all.
I have personal experience with this exact same issue...in Oregon btw, if it matters.
The moral is...if it is not for street use, it doesn't even need a plate! Up to the buyer to register it for street use. After u sell the car with a "offroad use only" disclosure, the previous owner is off the hook.
Just because u have a current plate just means that at some point in the past u registered it for street use (and it was legal then)....but not any longer.
Carry on.
Troy
