1986 911 Carrera Catalytic Converter Effects


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 ; Year: 1986; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock; Total Mileage: 56400;

What is the downside, and/or benefit, of removing the catalytic converterfrom my 1986 stock 911 Carrera. Will the car perform better? Will thehorsepower be increased? My understanding is that the earlier catalyticconverters found on 911's such as mine are very constricting and have anegative effect on performance? I recognize that most states require acatalytic converter for emissions; however, I am curious if the car wouldperform better assuming no emission laws. Also, if removed would you needto make any other adjustments or modifications for the car to perform andrun properly?
