A catless pipe that bolts in place of the stock unit. I have one fabbed up for my car but i only run it at the strip, it makes a noticeable change in power, but sounds terrible

why dont you just swap pipes with the totalled svt?

yup test pipe is just a straight pipe to replace the cat section [mines a 2 bolt flange to be specific]. yes it does sound like ass on a stock exhaust, with a optimized y-pipe its much more tolerable. Its nice if you plan on weilding up a hi-flow cat because its a hella lotta hassle to have one weilded up to your stock cat section [plus its really heavy].

if you gut the main cat, your going to lose low end power.

please post the physical address for my mapquesting pleasure.

BTW -- I'm buying the BAT hi-flow cat/y-pipe today.. if it arrives before this weekend and we get it swapped right away you can count on me showing up for the BBQ dealio. You all can take turns counting all the dents in the car.
