Charge motion plate delete

Probably a dumb question... I have read this is a great upgrade but everything I have read seems to have to do with 2005-08. Is this not an issue or an upgrade not available for my 2013 GT?

If you read up, on 09 and up they made them into the manifold, molded, so they can't be changed.

86_muscle is exactly correct!

OP, If you're looking for a quick and easy power gain, I highly suggest looking into an O/R Xpipe or Hpipe. These coyote 5.0's respond very well to deleting the restrictive catalytic converters. Plus, it adds a killer exhaust note!

If you already have an aftermarket exhaust system and are looking for more power- let me know. If you make a list of your current mods, I'll take a look and see what the next best step for you is!

Shane what if a person live in a state where emission are strict and they need to keep their cats. Is there a high flow cat that will pas emission or is there another way to setup the exhaust with stock cats for power?

Magnaflow makes high flow cats- I loved the sound and the performance gain I had on my 2011 GT/CS.

You can get a high flow x pipe, but most people will tell you go catless or dont bother. The stock 5.0 cats actually flow very very well. You will see a 5 MAAAYBE 10 hp gain by going with a high flow x. Although keep in mind, even a high flow x will require a tune. IMO it would only be worth it if you were looking for a different exhaust sound. Power gains wont be much.

IDK about that...My buddy just did cat deletes to his and it runs fine without a tune, just had the check engine light. However, he is running a tune now and is seeing close to a 40hp gain on the dyno...Everything else is stock on his car...

Yes but you just proved my point exactly. I said HIGH flow cats willnot give much of a gain over stock, but cat DELETES will. You also need a tune for either option, as the car will continue to dump fuel into the cats.

And before anybody asks, no, MIL eliminators will not work with our 11+ cars. A tune is the only option to do it right when removing, or replacing cats.

You can always upgrade to a high-flow catted X or H pipe too. Not all high-flow catalytic are emissions efficient enough to not through a CEL, so this is always a factor. Of course, Bama can turn off the rear O2 sensors to delete the CEL, but that will still fail emissions testing because the rear O2's won't be in check.

I've seen quite a few 11+ GT's run the Magnaflow Tru-X catted Xpipe without any throwing any codes. Assuming the emissions testing in your area only requires an OBDII check, this should pass emissions. Again, there's always a chance it will still throw a code, as it's not full-proof.

Assuming there's no codes thrown, a custom tune is not required. You'll certainly benefit a lot more with a custom Bama tune, but it's not mandatory at that point.

Hope this clears things up. If you have more questions, let me know!
