Yes, If you are running straight pipes you will see gains with the addition of the 200-400 cell cat. I started with straight pipes then added a 200 cell metal catalyst, also to decrease the sound a little bit.
Heard Keith, @dirtydeeds , ran the dyno with I believe a 400 cell cat and saw about 55hp increase.
I wanted the sound down a bit more as my dogs ride in the back seat so I added another 200 cell cat. I haven't dyno'd it but could tell a difference.

About 14,000 miles since the install and the engine is doing fine. I developed a growl/grinding sound but I believe it's a pulley bearing or something small. You could hear it really well now when I put the truck in gear or under certain RPMs. Can anyone confirm my thoughts are correct?

PS: I raced a 5.0 (on the drag strip) and didn't quite beat him. Lost by only half a car length. I later realized he was supercharged too, lol.

Like a bat out of hell. She's doing good. She consumes a bit of oil, so I think I am going to begin using slightly thicker oil. Maybe like a 0w40 or even a 10w40. Apperantly, oil consumption is normal (as long as it's not a crap load) on forged internals. The clearances when cold are a bit looser depending on the builder.

No intentions to hijack the thread... just sharing my ride!
Sorry this is so late, but Marv at Thunderworks in Victorville CA did all the building.

Not really sure, didn't measure it on 1000 mile increments. I regularly checked the oil after the first oil change when I realized that it ate about a 2 quartz. Hasn't done that much since.

If my cats don't clean out after I blew my engine than I may go with these. I used 2 per side. They also have a 300 cell cat. I prefer the metal catalyst since they hold up better when running rich!!

Glad to hear it's running great. I run the 0-30 weight in the winter and 0-40 weight in the summer.
