Nope, that's not true, at least not what I'd consider "high flow" cats. They may flow a bit more than the ones you'd find on a Prius but nothing special was done.

The big problem here seems to be that there isn't one universally accepted definition for "high flow". Sure, the stock cats on the Hemi will outflow whats on the PT Cruiser but does that make it a high flow converter? Unfortunately, Chrysler hasn't included flow rating for exhaust components in the service info.

you CAN delete the cats, you just have to make sure that you get O2 simulators for your sensors, that will take care of the CEL, and since you have an '03 you don't have to woryy about MDS. A set of magnaflow performance cats will bolt right into place, so I'd say go for it, just need to find a shop that will do it as it IS illegal to run w/out cats in EVERY state/province.
