    If you ever sold it, you would have to replace it and put the cat back on. Supposedly tampering with the cat is illegal. My brother hollowed his out on his mustang, it did nothing for horsepower with the mustang, he dyno'd it, 2hp increase. Yes it was a 5.0 motor. maybe a taco will be different. I would leave it...

    Your truck wont pass the SMOG test if the state you live in requires to do so.
