Nice, I think you can have your tune written to shut off the rear o2's. When I installed some LT's I'm gonna delete my cats too.
I'm not sure how that's gonna sound on a V6 though. Might be interesting.

If you keep the stock H pipe, it might not sound too bad. I saw a video where a guy added an X pipe with his cat deletes and it was super raspy.

Two added glass packs will make that set up sound great!

Be sure to keep the cats, as you'll be putting them back on sooner or later. It's a federal law (which out rules any local laws) to remove them. It's also illegal to sell or trade in a vehicle without them. If a dealer takes the car in on trade, they must install them to sell it. If you sell the car privately, you will be held liable by the buyer to install them, even if you see the car "as is".

Happened to my son; he sold his Subaru without the cat(s). Sold it "as is" with both parties signing the paper. Two weeks later he was served with papers stating he either had to buy the car back, or pay to have the cat installed. It was a $40,000 fine if he did not comply.

Easy fix. Just buy a high flowing catted x pipe when ready to sell your stang and swap that with your off road x pipe.

Good to have a plan should you decide to remove the cats. Just trying to save others the grief (and initial scare) that my son went through a couple of years ago. Even though Florida (central Florida) did not have an inspection sysytem in place, the federal law over rules that. So getting caught is slim, until you go to sell or trade in the vehicle.

I hear ya on that. The factory cats wont fit on the long tube headers. I didnt save my cats because I'm not gonna take off the headers and then reinstall the stock manifolds. Lol. Its just easier when I'm ready to sell the car to purchase a high flowing catted x pipe, remove the off road and put on the catted . Lol

BTW, it is also against Federal law to tamper with a working Emission control devise.
A friend of mine was pulled over in North Carolina by a state trooper in his F-150 and found out about that, he had high flow cats on it but was written for a non stock Cat and was told to prove the old cats were bad or pay the fine. Also was told he was supposed to replace with OEM parts when they go bad and ended up putting new Stock cats back on to lower the fine.
