just wondering if anyone has removed their catylitic converter and is running straight pipes around here. I'm driving an 86' 535i and my cat is plugged causing some major problems. i've searched all over for a decent used one (no luck) and i'm not paying for a new one(student income),and all the decent aftermarket ones supposedly only last like 6 months. i figure i may go straight pipes, but i'm just wondering about the fines and that. i imagine it'd be hard to get caught. does anyone have any input from anywhere in Canada. or if you live in Calgary and happen to have an extra one sitting around drop me an email. thanks.
