Can anyone give any indication of possible side effects of removing the Muting transistors from my CD63KI. I have read that this mod can introduce audio issues, and i am looking for the pros and cons of doing it

There might be switch on/off noises and clicks and so on when track searching, you would just have to try it.

A possibilty worth looking at is replacing the transistors with FET's. There have been some good reports of doing that if the circuit is suitable for example post #9 here,
