yes - only way to see any benefits is with a tune. It will probably run terrible without one.

Runs real good with the tune. But took it off untill I get the pipes installed.

You need separate tunes for a car with/without cats. If the tune is for a cat-less car, then i would wait to use it until after the cats are removed.

It's probably about 1 1/2 hour job by yourself the passenger side cat is a pain to remove hope you got about 2ft of extension an a swivel and some penetrating oil your gonna need it lol all in all mine wasn't bad take your time and use a jack on the mid pipe when installing back together to help get it even so you don't have any leaks

Probably make install a little easier as long as you can get it lined up correctly to tack it together

yes, you will get a CEL for the rear O2 sensors, the main reason for a tune when removing the cats is to turn off the COTS feature (cat over temp protection) which dumps fuel to keep the cats cool, the CEL will actually not effect performance at all, but the COTS being left on will
