It depends on your engine size, Id say 2-3hp loss max. Yes, it can be removed but you need to check your states smog regulations. Many people hollow them out and reinstall the outer shell to gain the performance yet appear to be stock.

I would recommend a carsound/magnaflow high flow cat very nice units. The high flow cat(s) are a direct replacement retaining the O2 port. You will notice increased resignation from your exhaust system with the high flow cat. You should gain a few hp Dakotas seem to perform well with any increase in the engines ability to breath. Have an exhaust shop do the installation!

Hope that helps

Common knowledge. Next time your at the muffler shop or mechanics, hang out with him while he's working on your car and ask questions.
