Think the smell was bad for you? Talk to anyone that rides behind a car with hacked off cats. I pissed off a lot of people with my catless 94, lol. Friends would hang back about a half mile. You made a good decision for power tour.

Way to go! Literally 38 years ago, catalytic converters were restrictive. Nowadays... Z06s and ZR1s run ridiculous power through catalytic converters.  

I wish I could find the test I read where they took cats off a C6 Z06 and made... ONE more horsepower.

So yes, do yourself, your friends and the planet a favor, and keep your cats in good working order. My next muscle build will have cats. And it will make ridiculous horsepower.

Well....new tips are not really a win in my book. What I wanted in my head did not translate quite right. LOL! I need to do some thinking and find something that will tuck up more and look less like a horse wang. I wanted to do the TransAm style tips...but there was not a good way to make that happen with the room given by the spare tire hump. These are the tips the shop had on hand.

Nice to see better looking tips on that exhaust. Also nice to see that you stuck them out the corners. Thats how i did my old 93 wagon.

I would like to run flat ovals that go straight out the back, or out of the side in back of the wheel opening. My opinion on turn downs is that they blow up a lot of dust on gravel or dirt surfaces. These are a lot of car to keep clean as it is.

Thanks everyone!!

Lol, dmg4 - The tips that were on there had plenty of scrape marks. LOL! They hung a lot lower and were at the very rear. Although they did help save my rollpan a couple of times when backing up and missing something.

Wagons generally get dirty on the rear anyhow...and the rollpan seems to really amplify that. A quick swipe of the California Scraper/Duster solves it. Lol

Final Dyno testing happened over the weekend. I say final, but I'm prob going back again after some more changes. I can see why this can become addicting...when you have numbers and get advice on how to improve...you want to go back and see the improvement.

Anyhow, drives great and sounds great. Went to and from ATL with no issues and the smell is totally gone between the cats and moving the tips. Exhaust actually sounds better with the turndowns. I'm guessing it's the waves hitting the ground resonating.

Alex (tuner) was great to work with and has grown fond of the wagon now and wants one for himself! Lol. Evolved Tuning is where the Dyno was. They were a pretty cool shop and the owner had some great info and past data from other LT1s to share.
