Depending on your jeep it could have 1-3 catalytic converters I believe. I doubt cutting them out will get you any "noticeable" power. Besides that, it's not legal.

On both points.

Also, I'm gonna move this thread to the TJ forum since this is the newbie check in area.

I believe I heard removing them is 10,000 fine. Please don't quote me on that though, I don't remember who mentioned it to me, or if they were credible. What I do know is there is most definately a fine, and if you go in for tires or service and someone notices they are bound (by fines) to report you. As here in NC they send in undercover cars to shops with things hooey about the car and depending on the wrench's response depends on fine or attaboy...

Used to be able to rod em out if they got plugged, but thats the only time it would help. But still illegal.

That was a piss poor attempt at " catalytic."

Leave them be.

True. Here in NY. 1996 and newer get plugged into Albany via scanner and internet to pass state inspection.. Older than that a check engine or emissions is not a big deal. Race cars, street machines, off road vehicals, etc.. Other than that no reason to remove a cat.
