Well I did mine last Thursday, and it sounds great, but I couldn't feel any noticeable difference in power.
Definitely worth doing though if you get it sounding nice.

If you didn't wanna spend too much more money, get them to gut your cat (should cost about $50), I didn't do this to mine but it will make it 10x louder and I'd say would make you feel a slight difference under foot.

Even if you're thinking of installing yourself, just speak to your local exhaust place.

Don't get redback, get a lukey exhaust. You wont pay much extra either, got one for my mate for $350 installed. IMO redback exhaust sound **** and most of the time you get a crap drone.

Hey guys a quick question, if you gutt the cat would you stil be able to register it. do they check the emmisions and that. coz theres some poisonous gasses coming out of the exhaust. and could you register it if you took off the EGR. coz my extractors are from a super 6 so it doesnt have the egr pipe sticking out. when you go for your RWC do they check the emission level and noise??

An yes they can check to see if you have gutted a cat by putting a digital thermometer on it the cat will be the same temp as the rest of the exhaust where if you have the guts in it it will run hotter.

Stupid question, as it's got insides for a reason!! Get caught with a gutted out cat and it's something like a $10-15,000 fine.

To the OP
Gains from a cat back exhaust change going from a thin pipe to a thicker one will lose torque down low but add more KW up top.
