    Which mid pipes? What kind?

    So I've decided to go fully catless. I currently have 3 inch catless downpipes and a Remus race axle-back exhaust system. I love the way it sounds and it's probably too loud for most people, but I want to go all out. I want to get rid of my secondary cats to make it a little louder and hopefully gain some HP even if its 5hp. Which leads me to my question: What are my options for getting rid of my 2nd cats? What setup would give me the nicest and loudest sound (straight pipes or x-pipe)?

    I was looking for a pair of after market mid-pipes and the only ones I found are the SuperSprint Mid-Xpipe. Does anyone have any experience with these? Any suggestions? Thank you!

    Maybe he already has a rear section?

    i saw prices for mid pipes in the 600 range, total ripoff...


    I honestly think taking it to a shop and welding in test pipes is cheaper and yields the same result.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I'd take $600. Some of the better pipes are $1000+.

    Might end up taking it to a shop then, still not sure though as I like putting high quality stuff in my car. Thanks for the advice!

    For your set-up on H-pipe would be all that is necessary to balance exhaust gas pressure, if you feel that is beneficial. If you are boosting over 1 bar I bet you'll feel some gains by getting rid of those secondary cats.
