Anyone running catless down pipes?

What's up everyone? Just wondering who is running catless downpipes here mainly in Ontario. If so, where did you get the install done from and roughly how much? And also what are you going to do for emissions? I've been really looking into these and think they what I want next.

Lots of guys run catless. Its the most popular exhaust upgrade I think and yields the greatest power gains from all the possible exhaust mods.

Lots of guys in Ontario run catless.

catless alone did not make that much of a difference with regards to sound for me...... Add an OEM PE and you got yourself a killer sounding car !!!

I disagree difference is night and day. Bms dual intake+ catless DPs (VRSF) and my car doesn't sound anything like it did... Lots of gurgles , deep tone and more turbo spool.. With the PE you get lots of Rasp without resonators

I agree with you, there was certainly a lot more of that.... However, after installing a PE, my car became a monster

Thanks guys! So i am assuming you guys all have done a resonator delete as well. Did you guys use a x pipe for that or straight? Also what are some local reputable shops around here??

Hot Rod Scotts is a good spot on the west end for any custom exhaust work, highly recommend them

Ivo charges approx. $200 for DP install I think. Not sure if he does exhaust install, but call him anyways to double check.

If you get DP's you'll love your exhaust!
If you then add the PE you'll have lots of rasp and will want vibrant resonators to clean it up.

This is the majority opinion between most members.

On the sedans the downpipes don't make as much of a difference due to the resonator, but on the coupe it is much more pronounced.

I would use an x-pipe.

+1, Ivo has done multiple exhaust installs for me so he can take care of that aswell. He has also done custom welding work on the exhaust for me so he pretty much can take care of anything you need.
