    Question gm performance parts?

    I was looking through the options GM has for performance parts and the cat back upgrade they sell looks pretty nice but it is priced at about $1000, has anyone tried the oem performance parts and if so what are your thoughts on them? thanks in advance.

    I just built my own. The OEM exhaust is non restrictive so any exhaust upgrades are for looks and sound

    well i live in a state without emissions testing so whats your idea on removing the cat and reducing restrictions that way. i am going for sound a bit tbh because i do want the turbo a little louder.

    I live in MN, no emissions testing here either. Exhaust doesn’t really increase turbo sound, that’s mostly intake. The OEM cats are high flow I believe to increase fuel economy, so you won’t really gain outflow by deleting. But experimenting with it to find a sound you like is always good. I love the way mine sounds, it growls, and turns a lot of heads

    Catless downpipe to downstream OEM cat, OEM resonator, that goes into a glass pack, then splits into a dual exhaust exit, whipped it up myself.

    I grabbed the GM Performance Exhaust and GM Performance Brakes from the dealer..

    The exhaust has a good medium growl and the Performance brakes were completely worth it..

    The brakes are super smooth and powerful

    I was looking at the breaks too, are they more pistons than stock calipers or just stronger? i know the rotors are better, been really wanting drilled and/or slotted rotors
