Post Secndary cat delete on a 3.5 g6?

I hear about the sound and hp gains of deletion of the 2nd cats, but I have afew questions.
1. what exactly are the 2nd cats?
2. would you delete and replace with straight muffler?
3. What would it sound similar to? im assuming the change would not be great with a 3.5 liter
4. HP gains? (im sure its minimal)
5. Woulda muffler shop do this procedure

THANK YOU

also i have intake and aftermarket muffler, would those impact these changes?

Are you refering to the resonator? I dont see many people removing cats. alot of people delete the resonator though. But as for sound it helps make your sound a little louder bit possibly more raspy.. if your talking about the resonator.

Exterior-AVS window and sunroof wind reducer, Dual Exhaust, Tinted tails, 35% Tint all around, DDM tuning 8k Highs & Lows.
Interior- Red LED's
Performance- CRAB's Option 3, Exhaust
Coming up: MMI's, Painted Calipers, Painted Side Mirrors

Removing the 3rd cat will result in some extra hp (I know with the GT-R Sam has said in the past that it makes a 6 hp difference), but is an emissions violation that will subject you to various consequences depending on your state. I've heard NJ has a pretty hefty fine for failing inspection for it, but I don't know what that is.

The justification you can make is that 05-07 had the exact same system without the 3rd cat, so it's not like you're making it any worse than similar cars still on the road, but still...

09 White Diamond Tricoat 'vert here!
