    Ok I talked to the local muffler guy well theres only two in town he said that it s tottaly against the law to take the cat off and he wouldget a huge fine. Thats funny cause wehn I had him put the glasspacks on last year he asked me if I wanted him to remove it. Damn bastard wont do it know hes chicken oh well though ill do it myself then. Does anyone know of a company that sells pre mandral bent pipes and the mufflers to fit on an 85 gmc jimmy?

    Do you have to pass a visual emisson inspection?? If so, I would recommend against taking the cats off unless you have a friend with a box of inspection stickers in his closet. I took them off last winter and now I'm catching a lot of hell for it! I tried to get a inspection yesterday and failed. The guy doing the inspection said that he could get a $10,000 fine if someone found out that he passed a truck without cats or a shop owner could get the same penalty for taking them off. He also said that there's a $1000 dollar fine to the owner also. I'm not sure if that is true but I don't have $1000 to find out. My main problem is that the system I put on was not made for cats so the mufflers are mounted just after the T-case crossmember and there's no room for cats at all! So now I have to practically replace everything once more

    yeah it is a huge fine here even though we don't have emissions anymore. At my shop we won't do it either... try ripping it off and going w/ open pipes.. generally then we will make a note saying it came in w/ no cat and replacing the exhaust and muffler only and that we noted the year requires a cat... then you sign it and the shop is off the hook. Even if you get a ticket it is generally a fix it ticket. My old 88 Trans Am had a Race built BBC in it, slicks, loud as heck... just had muffs and turn downs on it and all I got was a fixit ticket so Tie wired the stock exhaust on it has @ssed and passed LOL. That was with emissions too LOL
