Still costs a lot more money than what I'm doing. Plus I want the resonators to remain, they don't cost any power and should help eliminate any drone and keep it from being to raspy sounding. I know the OEM has quite a few squished and flattened spots, but I'm not expecting much difference in HP by eliminating that. My main concern with this mod is better sound, any added HP by losing the secondary cat restriction will just be an added bonus.
