Unique exhaust question

My borla sounds a lot better than stock, but still too quiet. If I switch out the stock cats for high flow will the sound get louder/better?

Yes louder, but "better" depends on your taste.

If you just got the Borla exhaust recently then I would say to wait until the system has fully broken in. The sound will change a bit as that happens. But yse, going catless will make it louder like Bubba said.

I have Borla Atak.. I had replaced the stock cats also and it did not change the loudness much , just the tone of the exhaust ,I recently put on Long tube headers and the sound is crazy now, sometimes I think it is to loud..

Well I've had it for quite a few thousand miles so I think it's broken in
