Catted x pipe vs. Catless x pipe

Is there a big difference in performance gains with a catless x pipe vs. a catted x pipe with a tuner?

Ya cuz I live in Cali and I know not having cats won't pass smog but if a catted x pipe won't pass either then I might as well just go with an x pipe without cats cuz there cheaper and either way I'll have to switch it back to stock for the smog test right?

Re: Catted x pipe vs. Catless x pipe

X-pipes without cats are more raspy sounding. But, when you add high flow cats or resignators it removes that raspy sound.

+1...i got an off road x-pipe. if the car is stock or real close to stock you're not really gonna feel anything going catless. even ppl here with blowers on their cars say that the only real difference you see is at the dyno..nothing you can feel.

Oh yeah...I hated the way it sounded...I went back to my stock exhaust. The drone was unbearable...snappy...hurt my ears. An h pipe is heaven tho. I am going Mac this spring

Ya I've looked at the prochambers on YouTube they do sound really good. But they don't come catted right? And they don't give as much hp as like an x pipe correct?

Re: Catted x pipe vs. Catless x pipe

Like said above you aren't gonna get any real HP gains so you might as well get what you want.You can have some cats welded to the prochamber but I wouldn't.Another thing you could do is get your car inspected as stock then throw the parts on but have a stock tune and a mod tune in your handheld tuner.When it comes time for reinspection put the stock parts and stock tune back on.

Ya I just don't want to have to deal with taking it off and putting it back on. It's a pain in the ***. I already have a tuner tho so I change it back to stock. But it's just hard to decide what sounds best and I don't want to buy it and then not like it.

Re: Catted x pipe vs. Catless x pipe

A couple hrs work for a years worth of play time with your mods until next inspection isn't worth it?

Re: Catted x pipe vs. Catless x pipe

If you don't like the rasp then go with a H pipe. If it were me I would do the Prochamber it sounds amazing. Go to some meets and check out other peoples exhaust or flag down someone on the road to see what they are running if you like the sound.Some YouTube vids don't help at all.

Ya the prochamber sounds awesome but should I get just the midpipe and leave the stock cats or should I get the whole offroad pro chamber system without cats?
