    You won't notice any power increase and it and it won't be that much louder, you'll just get more 'tone' rather than noise.

    It depends on your setup and engine of course, but with my D16z6 I gained almost a second on my 0-62mph speed when the cat was removed. Setup: stock header, stainless open exhaust and CAI setup.
