High flow cat if you want to keep it legal! Removing the stock cat is a pain in the butt and I couldn't even imagine what it'd be like installing it!

I think it's like 7 whp with the orp and 5 with the high flow.

ORP will make the exhaust smell funny, needs an O2 cheater, is rather loud, and it's illegal to run without a cat if your vehicle was equipped with one (VERY LARGE FINE!!!).

High flow will keep your car legal and makes the exhaust loud - though not as loud as the ORP.

The extra money you spend on a high flow won't even make a dent on the fine you'd get if you get caught with an ORP.

I just put a RT high flow cat on. Fairly easy took about 25 minutes (bolts came of easy). Feels real good. I will be hittting the dyno in about 2-3 weeks. Car is louder, but sounds good! ORP is just too loud (I I live in a small township and the Po-Po have nothing better to do). Go with the RT Hi Flow cat!

yeah, i'd just go with the Hi-flow cat, don't have to worry about emissions that way either, not to mention the fine, and the extra loudness.............all at only about 2 less hp............
