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?

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. KB
