The cats aren't restrictive enough to make a difference that you could feel. In fact, without the cats, the engine will lose low-end grunt and THAT
, you would feel, particularly with an automatic transmission.
Removing the cats is illegal, and will throw a code, so you won't pass emissions inspection; and you'll raise a noticeable stink wherever you drive. Just don't do it.
One pretty decent exhaust system is a Gibson "sweptside" which is available in either "aluminized" or full stainless; it sounds nice without being raspy or "ricey" and the "aluminized" version is pretty well affordable.
