Are Off road cats. worth buying?

2010 gt; My state has no emissions so I have no worries about that and I
would like my car louder but I was wondering if my mustang would get any extra cheap horsepower from it and if I would need a retune
with it?
I have an sct tuner through american muscle (93) tune, 4:10 ford motorsport gears, pypes midpipe back exhaust, k&n air filter.

"Off-road" means there are no catalytic converters on the car. So you don't really buy "offroad cats". You simply get rid of the ones you have now. Unless you mean an off-road midpipe...?

With your tuner, you can just turn the rear O2 sensors off. That way you won't get any CELs.

Could I borrow it after your done to dig up the yard.

What they mean is, there is no such thing as an off road cat.

Are you talking about getting high flow cats or high flow mid pipe, This is just a mid pipe with higher flowing cats than stock, or replacing your stock cats with higher flowing ones. These are often called catted h pipe or catted x pipe.

Or an off road mid pipe, like an off road x, or off road h pipe. These are mid pipes with the cats removed, or removing the stock cats and putting straight pipe in its place. These are often called an o/r x pipe , or o/r h pipe.

You would need a tune only to disable the rear O2 sensors.
