Noise pollution is one thing, but I'd really prefer to not release any additional pollutants into the atmosphere by doing this.
There was a discussion regarding this. 1. Car shouldn't "malfunction" because the muffler is missing. 2. The word "Muffler" says it all. Its to "muffle" the sound. Cat. Converter does the job of filtering out all the nasty stuff. Not the muffler.
The only "problem" this mod will cause is strictly "Sound". Your sound level(db) will increase. It could possibly give you more headache caused by the droning noise. Then again, if you love the exhaust note, it could possibly empty your wallet faster because you'll end up driving more.
