    yea you will drive fine but it will be loud as fuck, dont go into the higher rpms and drive in the lowest gear possible to keep sound down and you should be fine to make it to the shop.

    you wont get a ticket, just tell the cop where you are going and offer him to follow you there. i drove a crx a half an hour with the exhaust cut off a foot behind a hollowed out cat.

    Ya, I had the same problem when I got my Greddy header, it needed a pipe to connect to the cat. It was fun when I rolled up to one of the 240s with an SR20DET and the car was sounding like a muscle car at idle... blurb ba-blurb blerp blurp... Gotta love it!

    I did that to my Suzuki GSF 1200 last year. Rode the bike at about 120mph open header on the highway. My brother was a mile behind me and could hear me. Its the loudest thing I've ever heard.
