After Cat X pipe?

Right now I have SLP Loudmouth axle backs on my 14 GT. I want to do more with the exhaust but because the hassle of removing the cats I'd rather leave them on since it is my DD. Is there a noticeable note difference between the stock H pipe and say, a BBK after cat X? It seems like a reasonable mod if it's worth it. Then, I could add BBK headers too. Yeah?

The link says "No post".
I searched the forum and saw some other posts on this. Some from only a few hours ago, ha.
I tried to delete my post actually but don't know how.
Any way, people were saying it doesn't change the sound. So I'd assume the description would be false then.

Link works for me.

But I've never done an after cat pipe so I have no input. O/R or nothing for me.

Copy and pasted the link and got it. That's actually the one I saw and read, thanks for the heads up. It makes sense to just go all out but then you've passed up just bolt on status.

An O/R x is just a simple bolt on. The only reason I would choose an after cat over the O/R is to avoid tuning to keep warranty or to pass emissions.

O/R is "Off Road" which is no catalytic converters. Which I highly suggest you not remove them. Resonators are removed all the time.
I would stay away from BBK because of a bit lower quality.

I installed a pypes after cat x a while back, it only changed the tone ever so slightly to a raspier tone. I now have an offroad x. Much better. The sound is way deeper and more crisp along with more power.
