It's federal law that you have to have a cat. So AFAIK it would be illegal to remove it anywhere in the country. However, we don't have emissions testing.

Went to the jy and got a 120 amp alternator to put in and found some lifted XJ coils I think that's what they came off and think they are rough county springs they measure 19.5" not loaded and I thinking they will get me maybe to 3.5"
