ok well this thread was how to gutting cats and i didnt see one post about how to do it,

well if you really want to, take your cats out of the car and heat them up, i mean get them really hot, and then drop them into cold ass water, the materal inside will crack, and just hit it with a rubber hammer not to dent the **** out of them, and all the materal inside will fall out, there you go, and you have gutted cats

No offense, but that ain't gonna happen with the cats we have. They are layered with stainless mesh. The way I did mine was I drove a pipe through with a 5# maul. I had to beat on it a while then dump some catalyst out then beat some more, then remove the stainless mesh, then beat on it a while then remove more mesh then...more of the same. It took me about an hour and a half to get it all out. I removed the stainless mesh with a long drill bit made for drilling through wall studs because the mesh gets driven way down in there and there is a lot of it. The drill bit was long enough to reach and the mesh would wrap around the bit where I could use a pair of pliers to pry it out once it was at the top of the pipe. Hope this helps, John.

Yeah, I made the mistake of buying an o/r X pipe, only because I have the Pypes mid muffler system. With straight through mufflers they sound like azz! The o/r X does sound good with chambered muffs though, and they give you a few more horses than the o/r H. That's the reason why I gutted my stocker. I was already out the money on the o/r X and didn't want to wait on the H to be shipped. blk05stxjt bought my o/r X, and it looks like his combo is working pretty good! He's about to be on my bumper naturally aspirated (12.79). ;)

I dont dispute the argument for back pressure but, the rest is flawed everywhere!

Its easy to cut them out too and weld in stainless tubing. The X works better but does sound more Ferrari than muscle compared to a decatted/offroad H.
