Some people live and die by the HFC. Honestly, I like to have extra money for other things and I think that 250-300 for a cat that I don't need is a little exessive. So, if ya don't need a cat.....don't buy one.

I went with the orp and I enjoyed the sound, especially with Tom's tune... It's louder but not at all nearly intolerable...

I'd would say it's mild during normal driving and wakes up nicely when you get into it. I agree with Speedoften, it's not at all intolerable. It's a nice initial upgrade to an SVTF, in addition to a CAI and a tune.
