Secondary cat

Is it possible to add a secondary cat in place of the resonator? I got my Catless downpipe installed and the smell is awfully strong :

You know I think the smell either lessens or you just get used to it. I thought it was pretty strong too at first, but now I smell it from time to time but it does not seem as prominent.

Right? It doesn't seem like there would be any way it lessens, but it's true. When I am at a stoplight with windows down and a fairly warm wind coming from the back is when it sticks out. And when I park and immediately open the trunk. I don't even think the smell is all that bad as a smell in general anymore.

Idk about you but I deleted my resonator and used it in my muffler delete straight pipe and now that I am back running e85 again, I can smell that e85 when I fire the car up usually.

I'm not sure what the difference is between e85 and straight pump as far as smell goes...I'm almost always using e85. I think the guy wants a solution to no smell with a catless.

Yeah and I have stock DP. That's what I'm saying. E85 definitely has a different smell so I would imagine Catless would be even worse

It really isn't bad TBH, I don't even notice the smell anymore, unless I think about it. I actually find it smells good

That's what I have come to at this point. I don't really smell it. If my mom drives my car she might say something lol
