OK maybe I should have just made the statement you will still have deadly gasous fumes still coming in with or without a cat convertor in the system. Is that a better statement for all the ones who are wanting to feel big.

The current cobbled cherry bombs are hella loud.

Would the cat alone quiet the exhaust enough?
I dont have room for a cat and muffler, unless i do a supertrapp end on the turndown or something, but thats too pricey for my POS
back on topic, I've run my 4.0L with cats only and 2.5 straight pipe after it for a few years now. It isn't too loud, sounds pretty good.

I would expect they would be at least as good as a cherry bomb, and probably a little better.

Dude, I don't need to feel big, I know my shit and try to keep people from spreading misinformation.

I appreciate your earnest attempts to help out, but you were clearly in the wrong.
