Yup, it sounds great! I think everybody should stop cat back as their first mod and go for o/r X or H mid pipes.

I have x-pipe duels flowmaster 44 with a factory cat on each pipe. Iv been thinking about putting a high flow cat on it, will I need to buy two cats to replace the factory ones?

Not sure but I know you get a CEL because the cats are missing but this is easily remedied by either turning off the rear O2's via a tuner o by purchasing the mil eliminators which makes the computer think that the o2 sensors are "always happy". I plan on using the mil's when I do my mid pipe so I don't have to take the pipe off when I go get it smogged ( they don't look under the car here!)

Running O/R pipe without a tune and you will smell the gas fumes a lot. When I run with my tunes the fumes are hardly existent unless you're revving at stand still. Remember a tune makes your ignition more efficient so it burns most of the fuel inside the engine. Stock ecu settings aren't set up to burn the most fuel, that's why catalytic converters exist, to burn off the gas fumes the OEM settings didn't.

Anyone else confirm my logic? Lol

Not sure if a tune will make the fuel burn more in the engine or not. But I do know that the tuner just turns off the rear o2's so the check engine light doesn't come on. Though you may be right about the tune causing it to burn more completely cuz I think that's part of why you get more HP withe a tune.
