catalytic converter question

Maybe 10-20hp, mpg would improve slightly, cooler? i don't think so. A 5 spd trannie would be a good improvement if you want more power to the ground.
i have a a 88 TURBO full time 4wd a/t wagon, if i was to remove the catalytic converter ,the one right at turbo [ football shape] and put 2 in or larger pipe there ,and run 2in pipe all the way back to exhaust , how much more hp would i get ? how about mpg ? + make car run alittle cooler ?

I don't think that that is an option as IIRC that is MRS. 86subaru's car!
...A 5 spd trannie would be a good improvement if you want more power to the ground.
I would still keep a catcon on this, but just a high flow 3-way cat. I don't think the HP will increase as much as vanislru suggests unless your current catcons are clogged; unless you go to higher boost you should not see higher than original-stock HP. You probably would see less boost-lag, though.
You might think about an intercooler, as it might give more real-world advantages.
