Has anyone... [Deleted secondary cat stock]

I know that people have taken out the secondary cat when they put on their Eisenmann exhaust.

My question is, has anyone taken off the cat on stock exhaust? If so, how does it sound?


thnx!

I have 2nd cat delete and replaced sect II or resonators with x-pipe along with Tubi mufflers. Here's a sound bite of mine if you haven't seen it already. Hope this is what you were looking for.

BTW: I absolutely love it. It sounds so much better in person. No trouble in the cabin.

I don't think anyone in Cali know that answer since nobody has done smog test yet.

Keang24 is right. When I bought from eisenmann they said it should pass because of the primary still in place. Then, I take it to my muffler guy and he says it mostlikely will not pass smog here in Cali. I kept sect. 1 just for that reason. When the time comes I will try for a pass unless someone in cali says they failed with secondary cats deleted.

The sound is awesome and well worth it. It also seems like it has added strength the car.

It shouldn't be a problem seeing how they will just plug in the OBDII reader and see if there are any errors. If you don't have a service engine soon light there shouldn't be a problem.

sorry again, got mess-up with FogPuppy comment.

Yes. the 2nd cat deleted will give a little raspy groaning from the midsection. I have 2nd cat/resonator deleted with stock muffler for about a week while waiting for a new exhaust, so I definitely noticeable with 2nd deleted. Not much louder, just more raspy
