So, see what happens? Who did the cuttin'? I don't think it is pressure, but there is an oxygen sensor on the CC- maybe disconnecting that has something to do with it? idk, sounds weird to me- doesn't make sense, really-

I agree. I don't think back pressure has anything to do with it. If they eliminated a sensor that could certainly do it. Look underneath. Maybe the sensor is still there but got disconnected during the catalytic converter removal.
