Re: gutted cats

you will get a CEL if you remove the cats. You should get a programmer to turn it off as MIL eliminators suck and stop working from time to time.

Re: gutted cats

You really wont get any hp/tq gain with no cats, it will just be louder. Is that what you are going for?

Re: gutted cats

There isn't much difference between the 2 pipes power wise. When deciding between the two it really just depends on the sound you're looking for. X will give you a higher pitch growl while the H will be a lower rumble.

Re: gutted cats

Just depends on your preference. I prefer H-pipes on 2v and X-pipes on 4v's
