Catalytic convertor
« on: June 09, 2011, 18:30:19 »
What are the benefits/draw backs of having the Catalytic convertor removed?

A friend told me that their one was removed and when taken out it was full of soot. Their car performs a lot better now and fuel consumption has improved

Any thoughts?

Great question, I have been told it will give a slight improvement, due to better breathing, especially if it is clogged with soot. I have also heard that it gives the car a more agricultural sound, more like a tractor, and you get more turbo whine, is this true?

Where can I get it done?

I have also been thinking about having mine taken out...there is a place in Krugersdorp which will do it for R350
