catless @ idle/rev

ok currently my setup kinda dies in tone after about 2400rpms.

if i were to remove the cats what would it do to my tone at idle and rev? would the sound die at a higher rpm?

go to my garage to hear my current setup.

and any feedback is nice.

Your car will sound like it has a fartcannon that you would hear on a civic.

Cats change the tone considerably. If anything, get high flow cats. No cats sound like absolute *** imo.

dont remove your cats unless you like your car to sound horrible.

leave the cats, pretty much anything you do will just make it louder and more horrid sounding.

Loud is what you want Warlocks are probably it then MAC Flowpath then Flowmaster 40's 2 chamber. Flowmaster drone the worse at highway speeds

No cats on a stock motor sound like *** but on a modded engine it sounds good

^ I don't believe in the "H or X Pipes add to the sound" argument. I'm not convinced yet.

I would have to beg to differ on the " h-pipes and the X-pipes" adding sound to your vehicle, and also gas mileage changes. On a 2004 Mach1 went from a Stock H-pipe setup too a Stock set up with an X-pipe added i.E the h-pipe went bye bye. And the ca sounded alot better, better rumble and alot better growl. And all the gas mileage changes they seen a little better gas mileage in the mustang when they changed it, i would guess prolly because the motor could put out more crap from the engine quicker.<<< but that i wouldnt know.

X pipes produce a much more aggresive tone while H pipes make it more throaty...but as for performance on our engines I doubt there is much difference...maybe a LITTLE.

I only got an X for sound and to be unique.

When i pulled the stock H pipe off and put on an O/R X my car went from muscle car sounding to more like NASCAR...i have mangapacks btw. I think i may have a pair of cats put on to queit it down some though:chin:

exactly...h-pipes create that "throaty" sound that most muscle cars had...mainly because they usually had straight pipes or maybe h-pipes.

When I get my v8(whenever that is) it will have LT's w/ off road X and bassani catback...sounds god-like.
