High flow cats?

Just want opinions on Solo High Flow Cats? I installed a K&N typhoon intake, Vmax throttle body, and Magnaflow cat back exhaust already. How much of an increase am I going to get from changing the cats?
Also if I do or don't do cat's is there any huge increase from getting a tune? I have heard that it is necessary after getting the cat's, is that true?

A tune is not necessary with the cats. They will definitely change your sound and you'll feel the car loves them. I know mine does.

Like Asphalt said, you are going to feel and hear them. A tune is not required but you will certainly get more out of them with one. If you have any other questions feel free to hit me up.

I have them and really like the sound of the MRT V2's now. I am still stuck on whether they were worth the bucks for them though. I can't say as I noticed any performance change though, but then again, everything I added that changed or added performance I really couldn't feel it except the ported TB. Seems better in the mid range. The clip is not very good but gives you an idea of what they sound like. The day I shot the clip it was cold and wind was blowing about 25 MPH out of the south, also on a rough county tar road. Someone may have a better clip then this but here it is. First part is in garage, second part is economy take off, and last part is drivers side window down(the wind was on passenger side or would have had that down also) about 2/3 throttle on take off.
