Delkevic de-cat exhaust system

Has anyone used the Delkevic de-cat exhaust system without modifying the fuel mapping. Looks like I would need the servo buddy since the butterfly valve will be eliminated. I don't wan't to do any harm to the engine. Damaged existing center section of the exhaust and new OEM is expensive and I wouldn't mind losing the weight of the stock stuff as well. I also ordered a skid plate. Yes, I'm that guy!

I went with the Arrow Racing collector and Mivv slip-on. I installed the Servo Buddy and removed all the flapper valve hardware. I have yet to have it Dynoed or install something like a PCFC...I have concerns about it running lean, and since my ECU recall, first gear power wheelies are noticeably more difficult.

Off topic but I noticed considerable low end torque loss after complimentary ecu recall. But gained 27 mph on top end.

Im pretty happy with the cat. If it were me Id try to find a 2nd hand one. eBay or similar. I got rid of my muffler. I turned down an adapter on the lathe and welded it to the elbow I cut off stock muffler. I can now put any 60 mm muffler on it. I currently have the straight through stock muffler off of my bmw s1000rr on it. It sounds awesome. Im sure without the cat and butterfly it would be unbearable.

I just saw your pic. Any competent exhaust shop should be able to repair that. The cost may be prohibitive. Might be worth checking. Unless you just have your heart set on eliminating it.
