Kill The Kat

Hi people,
I've been thinking of removing the catalytic converter in my 200TE.
What could be the effects on the performance of the car?
power increase/decrease
fuel mileage increase/decrease
(not much of a restriction on the environmental front)

1990 220TE
1988 300GD
1989 yamaha V-MAX(sold)
1993 BMW R100R
1956 Willys Jeep(low bonnet)
1982 Honda XL 250
1987 300D
1994 toyota surf (4runner)2.4 TD EFI
1953 Land Rover

I did this once on an early 80's Dodge V-8. Acceleration from a stand-still suffered.

Pulling the CAT alters back-pressure and that in turns affects things farther upstream. My 2 cents.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.

putting a new one on can do wonders for an engine,taking one off can cause problems as many engine functions work in conjunction with the back pressure and heat a converter creates.....
