Difference between the stock H-pipe and O/R H-pipe?

So, I'm in the market for an aftermarket mid pipe, and I've come across the H-pipe, from what I understand our GT's come with a stock H pipe that is catted.

Now, my question is, would it be better to buy an aftermarket H-pipe without cats, such as the "Pypes" brand. Or to keep the stock H-pipe on my and just remove the cats from it? Would that be essentially the same? Or do aftermarket off road h-pipes have a different diameter?

Either way it is illegal, but buying the off road pipe lets you put it back to stock easier.

Do you have Emissions inspection in central PA where you live? If yes, keep the cats or you are in for a major hassle.


I don't think the aftermarket H-pipe offer any major advantage, other than being a relatively easy bolt-in rather than cut and weld.
