that depends if u want to be legal or not, does that have an o2 sensor after the cat, if it does you will need to keep the cat on, if not and you dont care about being legal chop it off, but it will be loud with just glass packs(the cops frown upon just havin glasspacks)i found that out. there r many places out there that sell some good cat back exhaust for a resonable price

Is yours a 5.0 or 5.7? 5.7s should be dual-cat, the 5.0s are single-cat.

Neither, I guess. If it's the V6, it's definitely a single-cat.
