    You might have a leak. If you 'launched it hard' then you probably created enough pressure to blow off one of your vacuum lines or something. Our cars are NOTORIOUS for this, so I'd say double check everything with a flash light. If you have a nipple with no hose to it, or a loose hose then you've got a line that's disconnected. Use zipties to secure any and all lines.

    As for taking off your CAT, you mean you want to go with a catless downpipe (which is what I have). You can check out ebay, needswings or even modernperformance for 2.5" or 3" catless downpipes. Depending on your states emissions, running catless could be illegal and you won't pass smog...but as far as performance it surely is an upgrade.

    As for your misfire, change your wires as well. Stock wires are complete junk. Another thing is, I would double check to make sure ALL plugs are gapped properly (I'd recommend a .040 at least since you're stock). Make sure everything is torqued to spec using a torque wrench. Reset your PCM by disconnecting the negative terminal on your battery for at least 5 minutes. If your light comes on, I'd look at performing a compression test.

    If you mean, take off your stock muffler (which is far past your downpipe) then no you won't see any power loss. In fact, you've eliminated one of your exhausts' restrictions. Turbos hate any and every restriction you may have in throughout your exhaust.

    Don't know what you mean by 'downpipe' it.

    From your exhaust manifold, is your o2 housing. It has your upstream sensor which monitors your A/F ratios under normal throttle and adjusts accordingly to maintain 14.8.

    After your o2 housing, is your downpipe with catalytic converter. Your second (downstream) sensor is located on the CAT, and reads your A/F ratios to make sure they are NOT the same readings as your upstream sensor.

    What is your question exactly?
