I have the Race Ready kit, btw.
+1 - Raceready is the best option, but they are not a perfect design - clearly not staffed by engineers.. they will eventually rattle. I've had mine for about a year now with no regrets though. I don't notice any loss in power or change in the torque curve. There is so little backpressure in the stock muffler that I doubt this has any effect, and until I see a dyno plot showing there to be an issue I'm going to assume that I'm fine.

Now when I take the secondary cats out....then I'd expect a major backpressure change requiring a tune for drivability.
