    I meant to ask this question myself, since that grimmspeed dp is so sexy. I don't think it would though, as the wastegate itself is still the same. But that is just speculation on my part. And on my part regarding their part.

    No, the different designs of the DP won't make a difference. Only the addition of a cat could help.

    Why would you want to get a catless DP to begin with? Just trying to save a few bucks? They aren't going to limit your power versus the ones with a high-flow cat.

    Depends on how much power. When you get up there a high-flow cat can have a pretty substantial effect on spool and response.. although for anyone at those power levels "boost creep" is a non issue because aftermarket turbos and EWGs.
