    Maybe a dumb question and obviously not advised but do you know if there is a way to get rid of the cats in our stock down pipes so we wont have to go after market?
    You should be able to just hollow out the stock cats.

    The question is will they sound as good?

    Should be louder. Don't think it will sound "clean" but it is a budget mod anyway.

    They won't flow as well. May not sound as well. And OEM primary cats are $700 each IIRC. But it is one way to go.

    Maybe if you buy 'em new. Used N54 DPs change hands pretty regularly in classifieds for around $200... Back in my B5 S4 days, "Piggie pipes" (i.e. hollowed-out stock DPs) were the $#@!. Even with a bunch of guys going "Piggie", used DPs with cats intact could be had for $250, easy.

    Piggie pipes were named after a member of AudiWorld forums whose exploits remind me a lot of those of Mr. 5 and hotrod182.

    I understand.. But those eBay downpipes are only $180. Seems like a better way to go if you want something cheap.

    same dollar, guaranteed fitment...

    That said, if I was considering going catless, I'd prolly spring for the ARs.
