I don't think it has much if any effect on performance so I wouldn't worry about that. Some people thought the delete helped throttle response but I think it just helped their butt dyno. I didn't notice any effect besides the car being quiet inside. It was a bit of a project though. Much more so than unplugging the soundaktor. Probably took me an hour.

Don't mean to dig up an old thread. But just got done with my conversion today and I absolutely love it! Thank you author for the super easy step-by-step pics and description. It took me about 2.5-3 hrs but because I was having problems removing the piping from the hoses(possibly because it's a 2010 and the hoses have never been touched). But I honestly feel a slightly quicker throttle response, not night and day, but definitely quicker. No more Sea-doo jetski sound, and the cabin is quieter. Now I can actually hear my engine and it sounds great! I do have an APR stage 1 tune, and got the kit from ecstuning

Great DIY! I just went full APR cat back. Thinking this mod will allow for more thorough enjoyment of those sounds.
