    I'm thinking about cutting the cats out of my truck was wondering if anybody has done this on this new of a truck and how it works? also i'm looking at putting the summit racing headers on my truck and was wondering the same thing if anybody had this? also do they bolt right up or is there any mods i need to do to the factory mid pipe?

    my buddy had his cats cut off on an 03 avalanche and the only thing is that the service engine light comes on because the emision of no cat to the 02 sensor behind the cat i can give you a link to his truck on youtube if you want!

    I would not cut off the cats, emissions is a huge problem, and if you go with high-flow cats you will add power and keep the missions legal. I have a friend who cut the cats off of his jeep xj, and it was so loud a cop pulled him over, checked for cats, and then fined him because he did not have any. he just paid the fine and had to weld them on to get emissions done. just not a good idea

    The stock cats are high flow cats, why are you wanting to cut them off?

    i was thinking about purchasing these headers as well! can any one chime in that might have these already. are they easy to install? the price seems to good to be true considering gibson and edelbrock are 400 bucks or more! i know these are ceramic coated but still.

    Just make sure you get long tube headers, shorties are pretty darn close to stockers.
