Catted X-pipe vs O/R?
I am currently trying to decide between the BBK Catted X-pipe or Offroad pipe. I am wondering a few things as the Catted pipe is $200 more.
- Is there a significant power difference between the two?
- Does the O/R pipe make your car smell like gas?
- Those of you with Offroad pipes have you had trouble with the police with tickets and what not? I know tampering with cats is pretty serious in the U.S. but I don't seem to see many people having issues with no cats.(I am in NJ)
- How is the sound for the two? I like loud exhausts but loud doesn't always mean good to me. I am leaning towards the catted x pipe for sound but that's just based on youtube videos.
EDIT- Also when i bought my car the previous owner had the cats hollowed out... I'm assuming the amount of gas I smelled with hollowed cats would be the same as no cats correct? I don't remember any significant smell.
