first, we demand pics, and is it a dx, lx, or ex?
but, seriuosly, just give it a full tune up, wires, dizzycap, ngk plugs, o2 sensor, if these havent been done for a while, You will notice a difference.

Hollowing out your cat is the most idiotic thing you could ever do. It actually loses power by creating a source of turbulence in the exhaust flow.

I don't know why people always want to hollow out their cat. Even if you do it the right way and put a test pipe in, it wont do anything. Also, if you are talking about a upper strut bar, it's worthless. The best thing to do if if you have not done it in a while is a full tune up. After your car has a fresh tune up, then focus on other stuff like a H23 intake manifold, better exhaust, ect.

Using a test pipe and hollowing out a cat are 2 completely different things. Even with a test pipe, I have never noticed a difference. I think you are just getting a placebo effect.

I agree. The OEM cat is supposed to flow so well that there's no noticable gain from replacing it with a test pipe. It's possible that replacing a partially clogged cat would show improvement.
