A friend has a 1995 F-350 with the 7.3 powerstroke. Lately he has been getting really bad mileage and I suggested taking the cat off.
Since it is diesel, I was surprised there was even one on there to begin with. Are they required on a 1995 truck?
If he cuts it off, will he get any grief come inspection time?
The better solution would be to take it off, gut it out, and weld it back in. I know on gas cars, even when emissions aren't tested, if it came stock with a cat, the cat has to be in place or it will fail 'visual' inspection.
