Default Needswing dp no cat?

I have searched and all i can find is about the e-cut out one.... Anyways i want to get some more power but not ready to get a full 3 inch exhaust turboback. So just wondering is the needswing 3 inch dp no cat even worth getting for a stock exhaust? will going from 3 to 2.25 inch bottleneck and cause damage or something? and if its a go how much hp could i get from it?

Yes you can get their downpipe without a cutout. Yes it does help even with a stock exhaust. No you wont cause any damage going back down to the stock size. Do a before and after on a dyno for HP numbers.

I got my NW 3" catlesss DP when I was stage 2, and noticed a great difference. Its an excellent mod IMO.

I don't really want to wrench anymore. I'd rather detail.

I even got a cheap off brand one, and I feel this is a difference. I would go with the needswings one for sure though if you wanna pay for it, it's definitely better quality. A lot of people have trouble with the cheaper ones flex pipe, I must be lucky with mine. The Needswings are nicely built.

I think its the best exhaust for our cars. It makes a huge difference over the stock exhaust no matter what your mods are.

I got a needswings with no cat. It's a great mod that bolts right to stock. Also, when I went full 3" all I had to do was hack off the bottleneck on the end of the pipe.

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses......Hit it

done a few downpipes and i would buy needswings just because of their quality.

getting rid of the factory cat does a great deal to the sound of these cars.

Plus the E-cut makes it easy to hide. worth the money, worth the sound, worth the gains. talked someone into buying one recently. needswings for sure.
