CAT. i pulled of my small dinky one that the owner before me had on, to my suprise it was freaken hollow! well that explained a lot of things. funny b/c when i bought my car 2 years ago i passed with flying colors, well this is before smog check 2 was implemented but dang, i have to go to work again tomorrow so that one the techs will do the smog, but dang, what a cot' damn suprise!
