Spot on...the removal of the converter by using an after market mid pipe on its own will have no advantage in performance nor sound, you need to change it out with the addition of a slip on that is properly mapped and tuned for the exhausts that you decide to use.awiner said:Jerry from Pirates Lair is first rate.
I have the MV Special Parts Catless Mid-Pipe along with the Motocorse F1 titanium exhaust. Alone, the mid-pipe doesn't make much of a difference. However with a Slipon RG3 or F1 system it does pass quite a bit more air.
The stock exhaust is pretty restrictive and therefore it is my opinion that swapping out to the catless mid-pipe has minimal gains in performance and sound if any at all.

What is the lowest I should look at spending for slipons? Any good options that don't cost $3k?
I have the Corse F1 Titanium pipes. Basically they are the same as the RG3 except made from titanium.brady280 said:Are you using the Arrow pipes yourself? Seems like a reasonable price, how is the sound?
