Remove the cadylac converter to install a flame kit on 1999 Chevrolet Blazer?

January 7th, 2011 · No Comments

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer and i would like to install a flame kit but since it has a cadylac converter there are not enough fumes left in the exhaust to create a flame. what would be the effect of removing the converter on my horse power, gas mileage, and volume of my truck. i would also like to know how to remove/disable it and if anyone knows of any laws prohibiting this in florida.

- its not a big deal, chop off the cat, and thats it. if anything your exhaust would just be alittle louder depending on how loud your mufflers are now. but the cat is only there for emissions purposes nothing else. i say go for it, then if you ever have state inspections put the cat back on, or just leave the cats heat shield on so it looks like you still have the cat, just incase anyone tries to hassle you
- Florida just enacted the same emissions standards as California so it would be very illegal to remove any smog equipment. Also pretty sure any kind of open exhaust that shoots flames would be illegal on the street.
- Tampering with emissions controls is illegal. If you have emissions inspections, you’ll get busted. Also, if you have flames shooting out the back of your vehicle, you’ll look like a dork.
