difference in high flow cat brands?

Hey instead of removing the cats because of emissions, and what not I'm looking in to high flow cats. I've read some on different brands but wanted to know if you all had any experience with some of the brands.. pypes, flowmaster, magnaflo etc...and if there is a difference in quality between brands ... Thanks again

I feel its better to just buy a nice hiflow catted midpipe. Difference is pretty much the quality or size of the cats. Hiflow a are pretty much just smaller so there is less restriction.

Nothings wrong with either of them, the h pipe was custom made, and the cats are still good, I was just looking for a little more sound and I heard replacing the stock 4 with two high flow gives it a little more beef.

Do you have emissions testing? If not pull all 4 off. Even then im not a fan of the 40's. I ran the 40's with a custom h pipe for a while with and without cats. Sounded just like a tractor. Removing the cats just made it sound like a louder tractor. If you want loud and mean, go with long tubes, an o/r prochamber and some good single chamber mufflers. A mac prochamber is hands down the best mid pipe on a mustang. Those who disagree cant afford it, and/or haven't heard it in person and dont know what they are missing. Single best investment I've made in my stang, and I've done quite a bit with mine.

That's problem I have emissions here and I was looking at getting your exact exhaust but its hard to get a shop to do it, they all say I gotta take it to another county, where they don't do emissions. And yes that tractor sound is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I've heard it aswell.... Haha. My friend has a shop with a lift and said he'd do it but he can't weld, so I asked my welding friend if he can weld it, but no ones schedule ever seems to be in sync so I'm losing hope haha

that clears that up a little for me. when I heard "high flow cats" I was thinking it was just a hollow piece of pipe lol

take two of your four cats off possibly and see if that makes you happier sound wise

I was also thinking about that aswell.... But wasn't sure if leaving just the front two would sound better or just getting the set of high flow... I wanted some opinions before I spent all that cash.... I'm just worried I won't be pleased.. I've looked at videos with just the two cats but there set ups were different so its not really much help. Or crap quality recording.
