Well if you chop it off you will lose power in the end. Like you will get the power back from having a clogged cat but then you will lose power from not having one. I'm not sure what to do about the light.

Replace it with one from Random Technology or Magnaflow.

You stated in your first post you have a check engine light.
Get the codes pulled.

i drove my 93 with nothing but a dynomax turbo muffler, i had alot of power from 0 - 60 but i must say i lost a little at top end not much though. i would try to get a high flow converter if you can afford it, remember people will buy your old onefrom you too.
