When I got my car a year ago I disconnected my Headers from my catilitic converter. I got ALOT of power out of it, it was also very loud. I just figure it something fun to do, I did it for awhile, I didnt even get a ticket for excessive noise.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hehe, Take the two bolts off that connect your headers to your catilitic converter. Quite interesting.

What does everybody think about doing this? Could you bolt them back on afterwards?

PA, would I hurt the engine by doing this? Which one is he talking about the one under the car? What about the plug after the headers? Thanks for your help

Dude; your car has potential, don't screw with sh!t like that! Buy headers and exhaust. That'll be much more worth it. I promise. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

snoopdog.......this isn't a performance modification it's just funny to do and drive threw a neighbor hood around 2 in the morning <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>. i skrewed up my exhaust and didn't feel like fixing it that night so i left it all disconnected after the flex pipe. everyone was staring at me cuz it was so loud and some old ass grand am spanked me off the line cuz of the extreme loss of backpressure and power. but my elantra did sound mean for a few days.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

oh and no it won't really hurt your engine but your check engine light will be on and the ecu can get skrewd up cuz the o2 sensor is disconected (atleast the way i did it it was)

Disconnect your header from your catilitic converter.

See the pipe where the 02 sensor conntects? Look down that pipe just a bit more, your cat is that big ass stupid thing at the end of the pipe, Just discontect the two.

just curious if that is breaking any noise laws cuz it's getting pretty boring where i live and i want to do it again but can't afford a ticket right now. harley's are that loud if not louder so i'm sure it'll be ok. when i did it before i was paranoid as hell everytime i saw a cop but never got pulled over. i know if they pull you over they can give you some sh!t for not having a cat but besides that i guess it's ok. anyways it's just fun to piss people off with a loud ass exhaust. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

LMAO, mee too dude, everytime I saw a cop I would try to lay off the gas as MUCH as I could, but yeah I know some bikes that are ALOT louder than we are when we drop our pipe.

OK time for good idea bad idea. This is a bad idea. Don't you know you can burn your valves up doing that stupid $hit. And for what? To be a little louder. Fun? We'll see when you need your valves replaced.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0>

that's some good info....thanks.......but how will it burn your valves? it would be the same as just running straight pipe all the way out and no cat wouldn't it.

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> I did it for like uh 1 week just to piss people off, that was a LONG ASS TIME AGO! Just so happenes I changed my intake cam a week ago, ...valves looked perfect it was a beautifull site....Also, I know ALOT of v8 applications who run with just a header pipe and nothing else, I also know 4 clynder turboed cars that run just the turbo with no piping after, how would this burn your valves! I know TONS of people that do this just to dick off.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Lantra, I know what you are talking about. You see the same thing happened to me...Kinda! My flexi plate (on stock exhaust) broke off from the front exhaust (it had been leaking for a while) and my car was loud as hell. It did gain some tremendous torque coz every time I would mash my foot on the gas pedal my tires would start skipping like crazy. To cut the long story short I didn't want to fix the flexi plate coz I had ordered an aftermarket exh. manifold. I drove it like that for 2 months (Dec. to Feb.) and finally got tired of the noise and spent $70 bucks to put the damn flexi-plate on. It was kinda funny pulling next to those V8 trucks and revving my little Hyundai louder than their monster trucks and ......I'm still waiting for my extractors!
