Another VX question

Is it possible to hollow out the catalytic converter on a '95 VX without any ill effects? I do not know how the sensors would react to it.

We do not have emissions tests in my state, and I'd like to test out the performance and mpg gains. My cousin has a '95 EX and no smog equipment, and it feels much stronger with the catalytic converter hollowed out. As an added bonus, he said the mileage increased by 10 percent.

Because the o2 sensor is before the cat you should be able to do it with no ill effects.

That's what I was hoping. I was worried that there may be a temperature sensor to tell the ECU when the cat is warmed up. I know that the VXs have a special catalyst, and that they will only go into lean-burn when the catalyst is warm.
