I did and love the sound. No power loss, no noticible gas difference....no pipes run...yet. Im waiting to find a way to flange out some exhaust pipe or find a pipe thats flanged to fit the old opening then run a single pipe out the back with a nice fat tip on it. I dont even want to put a super 40 or 44 or anything on i think the muffler delete sounds better!

Removing cats will make your exhaust raspy and sound like crap up high in the RPM's (especially with no muffler). It sounds alright inside the car but outside it sounds like garbage. I am speaking from my experience with a 3.8L v6 camaro with no cats and no muffler at one point. Hell, even my T/A sounds pretty bad without cats and mufflers.
