140$1 to 1.5faster 1/4 time?

well ive been lookin in to high flow cats an orp an on focuscentral they calam 1 to 1.5tenths faster 1/4 time is that 1tenth to 1.5 tenths or 1 sec to 1.5 sec when the orp is installed. I dunno thats y im asking ,an as of right now im lookin into the orp an id really rather pay 140$ for an orp than payin 200-300$ for a high flow cat. But i got a Q as of right now i have a mbrp cat back an I was wonderin if its gonna be so terribly loud im gonna get pulled over.Cops are not that bad around here but there here . Also im gonna run the orp with the stock headers so that should help the sound out a bit, One more Q is will i have to get the mil elimenator because i dont think ill mind the cel light but if its gonna mess up sumthing ill get it.

you don't have to get the eliminator but if something does mess up and your CEL light is always on you will never know that anything happened

It means 0.1 or 0.15 seconds faster

get the eliminator only 35 bucks.... but I would just get a full race header... it's cheaper then the shorty + orp (or hi-flow cat) combination.....

More importantly does the mil eleminator bypass the O2 sensor, if so is that a good idea?
if not what does it do?

I was thinking about an ORP to but am afraid of sending my car into closed loop mode, which I think happens when the O2 is decomissioned.
