Yea I may need to get one from them to try out myself. My tune feels like it's leaving a little on the table.

When I do put these on, will it hurt anything to run it without a tune ?

Gonna get slightly worse mpg due to the car trying to cool CSYS that don't exist. Throw a ecl code. That's about it.

I've taken cats off before without a tune and no issues other than the code being thrown after a bit. I've been looking at that light for about 40k miles on my Dodge Ram.

Really raspy and really loud is a extreme understatement. This is my exact set up. I would strongly advise to buy any other exhaust

I want to take out the cat, But there is so much Exhaust system out there, I don't know what I want, Should I just get an O/R X pipe and call it a day.

I think the gt500 mufflers are just one step up from the factory. Just to quite for me.

+1. At idle and low RPM's they aren't too loud. At WOT they are nowhere near quiet and not raspy or nasty sounding. I love mine now that my Flowmasters are gone.

Welcome to pain haha. For me it was so stuck I got a stripped bolt removal kit from sears. It was sockets with shape edges on the inside. The harder you push against it the harder it digs into the bolt. Other option is to get an impact wrench.

Sorry walked into the garage for this pic. Forgot the size. Haha. Been like 8 months since I did mine.

The one sitting upright is what broke mine free. 20 bucks at sears. Just tore the bolt off first go with a breaker bar.

3/8 for the swivel and 1/2 for the other. You honestly want 1/2 I just couldn't find a half inch swivel socket anywhere to save my life. It was also barely deep enough. I wish I had found a deeper one.

It wasn't stripped. I couldnt keep the socket on it. So I got the other socket which the harder you turn it the tighter it grips. I stopped slipping off after that.

If you could only hear my exhaust with a ORX, no resonators, and gt500's. It's far from quiet, it's just as loud as my flowmasters but sounds so much better and tame when you want. Absolutely no drone and the whole setup only ran $600. I have people ask me all the time what exhaust it is. And when I tell them it's factory ford gt500 mufflers with the other parts, they can't believe it. Especially when I tell them how little money is into the setup.

I'll throw in my 2 cents. I had Borla S-types. They were perfect. Untill I installed a O/R X. I put on my stock mufflers. Sounded too quiet and "whooshy". Added a 101mm Steeda CAI, and now I'm happy. Its still quieter than the S-types w/o o/r x, but the car has an extra 50-60 ponies, so I dont mind.To remove the header bolts soak them in pb blast(overnight is good) then a you need a 3/8ths drive socket because the 1/2" is a bit big. I used a swivel adapter. To get the pass side bolt, you need 30" of extensions and a helper to turn the ratchet while you position the socket on the bolt from under the car. A breaker bar or small pipe is nice to have too.
For a few more dollars thant the cat deletes, you can get a Gibson o/r x-pipe from amazon for $180 shipped.
