So i was reading up on scaudi, and they were all talking about gutting their cats and how much gains they were getting ( link for reference http://scaudi.com/sc/index.php?showtopic=3930 ) and i was wondering what effects it woudl have on a N/A 2.8, good or bad? A buddy of mine had a VR6 with a test pipe and it sounded badass. thanks

whats up guy! when i lost my cats on my 3.0 the gains were very noticable...i bet droping the cats on a 2.8 would have great results...better then anything else you could do to your exhaust for real gains trust me it works[:)]

But you are supercharged correct? I think the gains would be far more noticable with FI, rather than NA. Maybe im wrong tho?

on my 12v the gains were not very noticable but the shitty sound was. not worth it IMO. but gutted cats are completely different from straight pipes. that sounds good, gutted cats sound like shit. My 5 year old nephew asked me why my car sounded like a toilet flushing and I knew I needed to fix the cats ASAP.

haha yeah ok thats more what i was leaning towards anyway, i know on a PI car it makes a big difference...BTW they make test pipes for our cars?

not for a 2.8, atleast definitly not for the 12v. if you look at the cats, their welded in (again, Im not 100% sure on 30v) and you'd have to bring it to a shop and have them weld in straight pipes in place of the cats, might as well replace the flex pipes while your in there, they're gonna go anyways!
