Cat Delete problems

Was thinking of getting a new exhaust with a cat delete on my '05. I read in an article somewhere on teh internets that Ford recommended not doing a cat delete (of course) because the turbo would start generating boost at idle. Anybody out there who has done a 6.0 cat delete have any problems with this?

I don't know what the big deal would be if it was making a little boost at idle my cat has been gone for about 25k and haven't had any problems with it being gone and I love the sound without it!

How the hell would eliminating the cat cause the engine to build boost at idle

Mines been gone for 50k miles No boost at idle. No issues whatsoever

What I thought too. Didn't really see what the problem was, sounded to me like the typical manufacturer line of "We built a perfect truck, why would you mess with it?"

I thought a little boost at idle would be a good thing, not as much turbo lag if it had a head start.

x2. I did mine 2 days after I bought it and no problems.

Well; if you think more whistle from the turbo is a problem, you might have that

Yup. Ditch it. My truck makes boost at idle with all the smog gear on it -- it's a 2008 though.

Last month I installed an MBRP 4" turbo back and deleted the CAT at the same time on my 2006 F-350 4x4. The only "problem" I have incurred is a 2 to 2.5 MPG increase empty at 60 to 65 MPH open highway with 3.73's. I was getting around 17 to 17.5 MPG, last tank I got 19.6 MPG hand calculated. My towing mileage increased about 1 MPG. These are the only "problems" I have noticed so far.
