    Fitment is great and its probably the best bolt on for the car, up there with the intercooler with or without a tune performance wise

    they're made by ARH, so quality is good. $629 is a great price for new downpipes.

    Because they don't have catalytic converters.

    Some people are allergic to them too. Severly.

    Could you see what would happen if you're allergic and had to be around 2 all the time? Uphda. I couldn't imagine.

    I like Dogs much better.

    ;)

    I want to get some catless down pipes because it seems like there would be more power without cats, but has anyone had any drawbacks or cons to running without cats?

    if not tuned correctly you'll get a lot of raw fuel smell, but I haven't run cats on any car since 2008 and have zero drawbacks.

    If it wasn’t for being required to pass emissions tests I would be catless all day.

    They steal your breath... the animal, and catalytic converters.

    The cadillac derverters also get very very hot right next to your ptu with fords “forever fluid” in it. Probably why the fluid is real bad the first time its extracted

    P0420, P0430 for catalyst efficiency. Code can be deactivated by a tuner so no cel if tuner knows you have no cats

    They can tune the CEL off, but the readiness monitors will still lead to a fail on many emissions tests.

    Most tuners wont do that anymore. Big risk with the EPA to mess with that cell. You are much better off getting a set of defoulers.

    SCT's parent company got in trouble for this and had to pay a large settlement.
