we have a 99 7.3l and have it hopped up a bit. this is our lease/work truck and doesn't get on the road. well we have thought about chopping the exhaust off and running just 3.5" straight pipe. would i benefit from just dumping the muffler? or is the cat a big restriction too? right now the truck has a custom 6 pos. 140hp tune and intake but we run it on the 80hp tune as it feels like it makes the best power. is the cat on these trucks a big restriction?
