Modified Challenge street X-pipe

I wanted to go catless so i decided to go ahead and fab the primary cat delete and add an extra 2 resonators cause my car is already loud .

My car put down 579WHP with primary cats in place ,so i will update this post once i re-dyno with the catless setup.

They did a very nice job! Why not weld up the front as well, or are you thinking you might change out that section at some point? I guess if those clamps don't leak, they look beefy as hell, then there is no point. I had my shop weld up the fabspeed's because they couldn't get them to stop leaking.

Thanks for the kind words,the reason i didnt want to weld the front section incase i want to put back the primary cats back on,but after feeling the difference i dont think im going back!

I added the extra set cause i was worried that it might be too raspy and way too loud cause im running Gintani Race axle back,the car got less drone when i went catless,sounds very exotic/metalic and gets very loud up top.

I heard this xpipe in person. It's extremely bad ass. It makes my eisenmann race sound like it's stock with silencers.
