    Did you throw any codes? I would guess that it might throw a lean code.

    I could be wrong but I think only the front cats will throw a code if they are removed.

    So did you replace the cats with just straight pipe sounds really good and also did you do it your self or did you have an exhaust shop do it i know alot of exhaust shops dont do it because of laws and stuff

    I bet... Actually dont want it to be that loud, without something like a supercharger to back it up...

    Nope, no codes. Like homer said, still got the front cats so good to go. And not much change in the exhaust smell either...

    Yes, straight pipe exactly same size as Y-pipe, it's aluminized piping that the shop used, by the time that rust I'm sure there will be more competetive pricing for mandrel bent y-piping.


    But mostly Im happy with it. Fun to open it up at times, and sounds nice for my daily driving. Definately gets others attention...

    First Up- Nice NICE sound. Bravo for a job well done!!

    Now for the questions:
    Did you have them place a bung for the rear O2 sensor or use an O2 sim or just skip it??

    Change anything with the feel of engine during those heavy accels??

    Running URD Y-pipe now. But, when I had that set up, I just had it cut right after the O2 bung. You definately dont want to cut that off.

    Performace gains were a little more on the upper RPM's. The only diff between that set up and My URD Y-pipe is that the Y-pipe introduces a deeper throatier note...

    Just seat of pants, no proven HP. But I can tell when it's pulling hard. And it's mostly all above 3500 RPM's

    True Flow XDI Intake, JBA Headers, URD Y-Pipe, Borla SS CatBack. And a bunch of other goodies not relating to sound...:cool:
