    If you want a catless DP, why not just buy one? They're cheep enough.

    I plan to buy a good catless one soon enough but right now I dont even have the funds to afford a cheap ebay one.

    This would only be temporary. I can deal with waiting till i have money to get a good one but i was just seeing what peoples opinion is on this and if stage 2 is safe this way.

    I personally wouldn't do it and just wait. I'll assume that others will chime in, too. I don't really see anyone making a compelling argument for gutting the stock DP though.

    I wouldn't bother.. depending on your year model you might be able to run it without damaging your engine, but it wouldn't be worth it. A big problem with the stock down pipe is the block off plate, and you can't gut that.

    Yeah after looking into it a little more and talking to a buddy I think I'm gonna hold off on it. Thanks for the input though guys.
