Default Turbo with high-flow cat?

Hey everyone, I was just wondering if there is anyone running a turbo setup with a high flow cat. I know most people don't and that reflects the big numbers that they gain. I wanted to run a high-flow cat to reduce the scent of the test-pipe and was wondering if anyone is running one. I'd would be okay if the cat robs a few ponies, but keeping the scent down while maintaining decent power is my goal. There wasn't many threads that gave me a clear answer when I searched so I decide ask you guys. I will be running the Ultimate Racing kit, just waiting on shipment. Thanks!!!

I am new so don't hurt my feelings too much!!!

do all cars smell that bad???? My test pipe is on the way, I hope it doesn't smell terribly bad . Maybe my huge resonator will soak up some of the fumes?

Yeah, I know my buddy with a RSX with SC-61 smells like SH**. And I don't want to be like him

How is the Invidia exhaust boosted? Still as loud as NA?

I have the Invidia V3 witht he Greddy kit, and at first it was miserable, now its bad, just not as bad, I ordered a 3" Vibrant resonator. I would rather hear the Turbo Spool, then the exhaust

Mine's loud and smells like gasoline.

Loud/obnoxious = horsepower

Baby killers!

I have the Berk high flow cat, which is a noticeable improvement over the stock cat. I've never run a test pipe so I can't compare it, but the high flow cat was flow tested to be 87% of a straight pipe.

being that turbos respond VERY well to VERY high flow.... I would never cut down on flow on any turbo vehicle. I just wish I had 3" exhaust the whole way back.
