Richard, I'm in Colorado and my 83' TQC has a small two chamber 
Flowmaster where the cat. converter used to be. Then it goes straight 
down the tunnel to a 90 degree bend and out the side. It's real loud and 
I wouldn't ever think of taking it to a emissions station, but it sing's 
at high RPM's. I have experienced some loss of low end grunt, but the 
whole car was built for high RPM operation. In case you wondering I live 
in a part of Colorado that doesn't require emissions.

Happy motoring, Ben
