Case of the strangled cat

Along with the crazed experience of the cracked subframe, we decided as we
were under there that 1) the cat installed was _not_ the correct one, and 2)
the horrid angle of install (with 2" pipe) made things even worse.

Temporary replacement with a test pipe (until install of a good cat back
system and a hi flow cat) achieved the following results - dramatic decrease
in lag, lower operating temps, part throttle detonation I've fought with for
months completely gone.  Slightly louder idle, not unpleasent.
