Cool Off-Road Pipe or Cat-Back?

Hey guys. This my first post here. I have a 2002 Pitch Black SVTF and I want to start modding it. Finances are a major factor so it's only going to be a little at a time. I am trying to decide on exhaust mods first. SVT already addressed the exhaust on the SVT pretty well with the header and larger piping. So my question is, Would I get better results with doing a cat-back (Magnaflow or Borla) or just doing an Off-Road pipe. Thanks

You'll get better gains with the ORP.

Go with ORP - Stock exhaust is as the best as they come unless u wanna make it louder but the ORP will do that for u!
