Did you take any rough measurements of before & after or this a seat of the pants measure?

All seat of the pants, lol. But it makes the Flowmaster sound so good.

I bet my first exhaust mod was a high flow cat and it really woke up the tone of the OEM exhaust

What you feel will have a great deal to do with how clogged your OEM cat was. Some of the improvement you felt was re-gained (original but lost over time) power. Some was improved flow over that.

Some people will feel more than others for this reason.

Good to know. I just put on the Magnaflow a couple weeks ago and haven't really tried it out yet. I was catless for a while but finally got it installed and stopped polluting the air so I think I will have a little more low end torque again maybe.
