Cat question

I have a 4" MBRP turbo back exhaust and I was wondering what I might gain by removing the stock cat and installing the MBRP cat delete pipe? I would like to get a little more sound out of my exhaust. Performance would also be a plus. Also someone told me if you remove the silencer ring out of the turbo intake that too gets louder. Any info would be helpful

legally you are not supposed to take out the cat (e.p.a. regulations), therefore a shop won't do it and you have to do it on your own. i've also heard that it will mess up your computer settings cuz there is a sensor after the cat.

I believe the sensors were one of the "new improvements" for the 6.4's. The 6.0's don't have one.

What I plan on doing is order a cat delete pipe that mounts in place of my cat. Ford was at least nice enough to just bolt the cat on so I could take it off and on when needed. (ie; when I take it back to the dealer.)

ok, i was told on several occasions that somehow the comp senses that the exhaust isn't what it supposed to be and therefore changes thing in the engine.

I have been running with no cat or muffler for over a year with no issues. Like was said earlier, you will hear more whistle and see slightly lower EGT's

The silencer ring is not easily removable on vehicles newer than 2003. It requires machining off and even then only barely increases whistle.
