Catalytic Converter

Recently purchased a 1988 Ford Ranger that has a bad cat coverter...have
been told that to remove it or bypass it would harm the engine. Does
anyone know if that is true? Is it possible to run a straight exhaust on
this truck?

Re: Catalytic Converter

If you area does not have emission inspection YOU can take it
off.
Tampering laws only apply to those in the business, not
individual owners.

I do know that is not totally correct anymore. several states have
owning the tampered viechel a fineable offence now. (weather you know it
is tampered with or not, if that isn`t stupid) check your local laws.
