Okay, I need opinions before is just sell it!

I got rid of my Harley and got into my 1LE because I had my first kid and I thought this would be a better, safer toy. I don't know, but I'm just not really thrilled with the car. It looks amazing and handles great, but I feel the NPP is lacking....I need to hear this thing!

I'm debating if I should just buy the Stainless Works Retro Cat Back with the quad tips and a CAI. I'm just wondering if this will get me to where I want to be. My last toy car was a 2003 Cobra the had 500 hp and sounded mean as hell!

What should I do?

A quicker solution would be delete the cats and get a tune. The NPP exhaust will bark when you do that. Here's a video showing the difference between NPP stock setup and NPP with high-flow cats:



With no cats it will be even louder. A tune will cure the check engine light.

I would go with Solo high flow cats before tuning your car.

That being said, I would go long tube headers, high flow cats and a tune before going just high flow cats too.

Either way, it depends what you plan to do down the road. If LT' are never in your future then go high flow cats, it will give you as much sound as a cat delete, with less rasp and no check engine light.

Harley guys do not like a smooth idle or mufflers. IMHO you will need a set of long tubes with no cats loud cat back and a lopey cam to be happy .

Headers and HF cats definitely make a huge difference with the NPP exhaust.

This is mine. Not a great video but you can get the idea:

LT headers if you want the performance and sound. Also you can pull the F8 fuse in the trunk to open up the NPP flaps all the time (free mod!)

I agree with everything above... high flow cats will make a big difference if all you want is sound.

Dont sell the npp!!!!!!! I have it with headers/high flow cats and my friends just shitt in their pants. Very loud at the drag strip too!!! And its quiet while riding on the higway. Its the best catback ive ever heard/seen.

I had jba mid pipes and just that will net you 20hp and a lot more sound! Youll have a CEL though. Nobody cares. I dont see it in my dash anymore, its part of the deal.

Borla systems are a great choice.

I have done a few and my clients loved them.

other option is some Flow master mufflers on the rear.

I Also recommend headers.

If he is a real Harley guy,

He needs to pull the exhaust fuse out ASAP,
-then buy headers (cats/no cats is a personal choice)

Do not sell NPP.
