    I have a catted bassani X and bassani catback on the car right now. I took the baffles out and I'm pretty happy with the sound. I have straight pipes for it and was debating on putting them on - anybody have any suggestions with this same set up? Do you regret taking the cats off? I did a search but didn't have much luck.

    Also, I assume the power wouldn't be much different either way?

    From what i have been told you will have a little bit more rwhp w/o cats, BUT you will have more rwtq with cats. I decided to keep my cats on.

    I have had your setup since 2003. Leave the cats on unless you are after more noise gain than HP and TQ. M2C

    Leave them in, it sounds like crap with them out! Think redneck pickup. I'll never run an O/R X again on my car.

    I disagree... But, it's a matter of taste I guess...

    The only time I don't like the setup is roughly 25%-50% throttle through 2000-3500 rpms or so. It gets a little too raspy for me. But, if you live in a city with a lot of traffic, I don't think there's a better setup. It sounds the best slowly accelerating through the gears. I always get complements when I'm cruising in traffic. :beer:
