Took my mom's truck and had it washed and cleaned out really good took off my dad's old tailgate on his '75 Furd primed a new tailgate we got off of a parts truck put on the new tailgate (that actually has a functional handle now ) painted the inside of the tailgate black to match the black bed completely cleaned out the bed (had a TON of stuff in it) pressure washed the entire truck cleaned and began painting his drivetrain...axles, d-shaft, frame, etc. Went and bought some 6x9 Alpine Type R's to go in his doors Got the new Alpines put in....they sound great btw replaced windshield wipers Cleaned his K&N filter and pre-filter Turned up the idle a wee bit on his carb topped off all fuilds (MC has a tiny tiny leak somewhere) Oh and I sealed up both of my boxes for the 12's behind my seat...it sounds soooo much better now....I played w/ some porting but couldn't get it to the freq.'s where they were happy...so its all sealed back up now So what did everyone else do this fine sunday afternoon? Almost forgot...I didn't do this b/c I have heard rumors that it can cause issues so I figured I'd ask first. I want to cut off my flowmaster until I get a new exhaust put in...yeah yeah I know...not legal...w/e...if you're response is going to be telling me not to do it b/c it isn't legal I don't want to hear it b/c I already know the consequences...but my question is other than possibly damaging the Cat is there anything else that can be damaged by doing this? Right now it's: factory manifolds ---> 2 to 1 ---> straight pipe ---> Cat ---> straight pipe ---> flowmaster ---> straight pipe/turndown.... So if I cut it off right before the flowmaster...still leaving about 18" of straight pipe after the Cat...Thanks!
