OK D, no offense but after that explanation I would not remove it from my car! Maybe its just me but I can't see how that would not effect performance, ride and feel. I'm guessing it has to effect the ECU readout, and would add wear and tear to the lower end of the motor as well.

Besides, you made it sound like removing your left testicle would be no big deal . I beg to differ my friend.

Exhaust Depot makes something to replace it with I think, I can't remember...

Anyways, do some research on it by using the "Search" feature on the board! There are lots of threads out there explaining how to do it, and the goods and bads of doing it!

I don't care what a search says, left testicle amputation can not be a good thing!

Yea sounds to me like the cons outweigh the pros, don`t get me wrong i like power, but not at the sacrifice of the ride, the damn car rides like shit already, u can atest to that, so I will let u do it then ride around in your car and decide whether or not I am for or against that.

Yea, a lot of them meet at the bridge... but if you wanna see a fast one, ya gotta travel east a little to Lakeland... Of course, there is only ONE fast one, vs 10 slow ones at gandy

Unless you count Jap dan / SRTdan's SRT4 that runs 11.20@145mph on a 500shot and stock turbo

Ahhh, ok, got me cheap shot in, hehe... Yea, gandy is the place to see some SRT4s and more. Only one suggestion... Don't race the caviler.
