I know this doesn't exactly answer your question, but....I'm still running a stock h on my 2009 gt with a pypes axleback. I've heard lots of people saying that h and x pipes with no cats is crazy loud (almost in a bad way). I've been looking to buy an X pipe the past few weeks and to be honest it seems like most of the best sounding cars have catted h pipes or catted x pipes.

my brothers 05. He likes it but its too raspy for him, getting a catless H soon. And yes lol very very loud at WOT but not too bad around town.

OP im going to do my research on that and run it by him. Who knows i might throw a video your way if he decides to go for it! Hope you find your answer and sorry i couldn't help.

I have one on my 07. You can't beat it for $130. It is not stainless or anything but it gets so hot that I do not see how it would rust. It is a nice modular design and goes in pretty easy. Hardest part was getting the collector bolts out.

Only one. You just take the other one out all together. Just make sure you get a tune that turns the rears off or you will get a CEL.

Honestly I do not know. But the car getting bad readings from the sensors will cause it to react in some way. Whether it be bad or good I am not sure.

After going offroad mid you should get tuned, it may cause you to run rich.

Running lean means not enough fuel for the amount of air, rich is opposite which too much fuel for the lesser amount of air.

Removing the cats and rear o2 sensors will not effect the tune in your car the computer use's the front 02 sensors to adjust the air/fuel ration the cats are used to burn off the un burnt gas's in the exhaust for emissions and the rear o2 sensors are used to tell if the cats are working correctly when you turn the rear 02 sensors off in the tune it dose not effect the tune it just turns off sensors so you dont get a check engine light but by doing so if you have emissions testing in your area you will fail an emissions test because the rear 02s will show up as not ready

+1 did a lot of research on this before I put mine on as I did not have a tuner at the time and was worried about what may happen

So for the record "is it safe to run an off-road mid pipe without a tune? " because I don't really know and would like a sufficient answer if anyone can answer please ...

Yes you should be alright I ran mine without one for a couple months without a problem, however my cousin has been running one too without a tuner and said he's running rich. There is many people that t run it without tuner you'll be fine.

I'm running the ceramic coated Pacesetter LT's and off road H pipe, lost about
1psi of boost on the blower because of the larger flow of the LT's, did have to get a tune for that. Can't beat the price of the Headers and mid pipe.
If you are running just the mid pipe you don't need a tune if you don't mind the check engine light. The rear O2's just mesure temp and removal (NOx, CO, etc..) performance of the Cats and do not change your air and fuel ratios. You are safe..................
