Replacing the CAT with a muffler?

Has any one done this in a non car inspection State?

Some one wrote me , but cant remember which type of muffler it was. I would like it to sound more like a Fabspeed w/o the expense (:

The car in question is an 89 S2 stock. with 97k

Any ideas ?

I have Borla cat back on my now for sale 08 Jetta(GLI clone) it does sound

very KOOL !!

you could do it, but it'll STINK without a cat.

Most Euro spec 944’s weren’t fitted with a cat and had a small intermediate muffler in its place according to pet.

maybe your nose isn't as sensitive...
i had a dead cat for some time and it REEKED...smelled like it was running rich all the time, but slightly different smell...CO poisoning for days.

it was a happy day to put a fresh cat back on.

If you've done it on other cars why are you asking again? exhaust options for 944/T/S/S2 is something that has been discussed ad nauseam on this forum and others. Do a bit of research and you'll find an endless supply of opinions and feedback.

Installed this cat last year with a borla, works great. The cat is a 3" for higher flow, just need reducers to go up a size and then back down. Same one that lindsey racing sells for a fraction of the cost.

Factory cat equipped (same as factory decat) - 196.5 BHP @ 6500rpm & 184.2 ft-lbs of torque
Cat delete bypass tube - 197.7 BHP @ 6500rpm & 180.1 ft-lbs of torque
Cat delete custom resonator - 199.9 BHP @ 5500rpm & 199.2 ft-lbs of torque

The interesting thing is the differences in performance.

Cat delete bypass tube - +1.7bhp -4 ft-lbs of torque (yes MINUS 4 ft-lbs of torque!)
Cat delete custom resonator - +3.9bhp +15ft-lbs of torque

I found this on a previous post on 944 site. which had an explanation why this occurs.

In synopsis look at the results, has any one made a hook up like this replaced the CAT with a resonator? Like to hear what to have to say ,
thanks again

I punched the cats in both my cars and it never affected passing emissions.

What it did do was make the sound deeper and throatier - which I like.

There is no effect to the smell.

Surprising, having a dead cat made my car undriveable for more than a few minutes at a time. Smell sticks to your clothes.

So much better with a brand new cat now.

As to those dyno numbers, guessing that's a 968 or 951 numbers?

So this front muffler fits in the same space that the CAT was in ? Looks like a perfect replacement. Wonder how it sounds??

That’s the stock factory muffler fitted on some row cars that I mentioned a dozen posts ago. Yes it fits exactly in place of the cat but really doesn’t change the sound to any extent.

NZ would be a ROW car which did not have a catalytic converter from the factory. It has a pre muffler which is what he is showing you and giving you part numbers for.
