You will gain power you can notice! Only draw back it the excessive noise it creates. I installed a spiral muffler in it's place after running it for a week with a pipe, it looks like a cat and it removed the annoying drone at 65mph for me.

For a everyday driver, stick with the cat. For a race truck remove it, for a mild setup install a tube muffler. I'm not sure how it sounds gutted. Every other gutted cat I've heard makes a rattle sounds I don't like.

John2,
A good low-backpressure cat will only help your rig and won't effect the sound [for most driving]. If you're in a vehicle inspection or emmissions state, the spanking for no cat can be rough,...D

Removing the cat will screw up your computer and reduce gas mileage.

If you have an 02 then you already have the pre-cats and removing your third cat won't really change things much (the computer is looking at the pre-cats, not the third one). It will be a little louder and a bit quicker. May I suggest you not go the flowmaster route and try spintech. Your R/T will perform better with the spintech 5441 muffler.

BTW- I had a dumped flowmaster 50 and it was almost as loud as the truck with out a muffler.
