Ive looked at a couple of cat back systems and i just dont think they are going to be loud enough, im from indiana and we dont have emisions or inspections, as long as i have a cat on im legal and they rarley ever check that, so im thinking of running wide open from the cats back, any suggestions or concerns? thanks in advance

I chopped mine right after the cats and right angled it out the side for a few months. it was VERY loud inside the cab. 2 months later i piped it out the back. and then 3 months after that i put the muffler in it. it really does have its own sound. its kinda like its growling at you. i kinda like it. just make sure you pipe it out the back and you should be fine. it will sound mean but wont give you a headache in the cab.

Have a Magnaflow cat back on ours and it's a little tame. Sounds good WOT though for sure. I believe it's the rgight fit for our taste. I'm sure after awhile a loud exhuast note in the cab would get on my nerves. I have sound clip but don't know how to post up here. Good luck
