I've gone that route too many times in the past and regretted it.

My Scangauge can measure EGT. I wonder if that would somehow correlate to Cat temp. Obviously not nearly as useful but I wonder if its worth anything.
I am so torn on this. I can go either way and I actually do occasionally. I am catless now. The sound is awesome. The results are even better. However I am a nervous about what summer brings with the windows down. I am 42. Have three kids and a wife. All four of them arenít going to enjoy the smelll. And frankly if I had to take a coworker Iíd be pretty embrassed of the smell. Its a real shame.

The fabspeed is a great looking piece. And I am sure itís better than stock. But I have serious doubt to it performing even half as good as catless
