Default Exhaust work: Cats or no cats?

I'm debating between getting some high flow race cats or to go sans cats altogether. I have heard without cats the interior of the car will always smell bad after driving the car. I would prefer not to have this smell. For the small HP loss I don't see a reason not to run cats. They only will take away 5 HP.

The cats I am looking are: Random Tech 100 cell, Magnaflow Spun Cats, and MBS High Flow cats. Is one better than the others?

I have high flow cats on my T/A. You won't be able to tell a difference other than it doesn't stink as bad. I don't see a reason not to use them unless it just doesn't work with your application for whatever reason.

I figure since I run my oil/gas mixture a little rich on the 2 stroke, I should do my part to reduce emissions else where.

If you're interested, I will be taking my high flow cats off soon. I believe they are 3" and would make you a really good deal on them. They work great, just looking to change my exhaust setup and gonna need a tune anyways.

still undecided on my exhaust. Might just keep them on there since it's ran great underneath and I can't do true duals. Just gonna change out the mufflers and go that route, at least that's what i'm planning on doing today. lol

Not soon enough to sell them to you, if I decide to go that route. Don't want you waiting around for an answer from me as I finally got my car up in the air and know that true duals won't work so it's not worth tearing the exhaust apart other than changing mufflers. Sorry.
