With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Anti catalytic converter theft.....

Is there any interest in a anti theaft plate for Cats.? Im going to make one, and it will cover the cats. and the tranny. 1/8" steel, painted, and bolt on install. Target price should be $200.00 to $250.00 + shipping.

The price is probably fair, but if I'm going that route, I might as well go with the y pipe.

I think that a lot of people with emissions testing will go this route.

Just this past week I measured and drew one up so it could be sent through our shop to be punched and bent out of sheetmetal. I added louvers so that the cat's could breathe and not get the armor plate so hot and the paint won't burn off of it. I thought about having it made out of stainless but I didn't want that stolen along with the cats. If you want to see my drawing let me know. The only problem would be that I don't have the plate yet to see how well it fits.

I thought about useing sheet meatal too, but it wont offer much protection when off roading. My choice to use 1/8" will offer plenty of ventilation, while also protecting the tranny and exhaust from a big impact. I like your idea, though!
