Default ISF midpipe cat delete adds 30Hp?

Will a mid pipe that deletes the cats and resonator rally add 30Hp? I can get one on ebay for $700 and thats what hes claiming with dyno sheet. I really want the sound benefit also but does anyone have experience in this? I have a GTR that I did a midpipe swap and the sound was unreal totally worth it.

A lot of people have removed 2nd cats AND mufflers and the sound is great (I previously had it done), BUT 30hp is wishful thinking. 15-20 MAX on a good day would be my guess. Plus, just a midpipe won't do much with those stock mufflers in place. I had headers and deleted 2nd cats with stock mufflers and the car still sounded stock for the most part. Those stock mufflers REALLY work. The GT-R sounds a lot better with just a midpipe, but won't be the case in this car. I never did a midpipe on my GT-R, but oh that tune!

No way you get 30 from that, I'd say closer to 6 whp without the cats and I dont think deleting the res will help at all.

^^^I have the same setup and it is worth hearing in person if possible.

This was my dyno result done in 6th gear with Borla catback, PPE headers and high flow cats. Note that this isn't a dynojet so the numbers are more realistic.
