i got a 2 and a half inch cat back exhaust fitted and it sounds great, but was just wondering would a performance cat do much for the sound or performance and how much would it cost to get done? any help or suggestions would be great

Cheers :D

performance, not really, pretty much negligible probably like 1rwkw (if you're lucky)

BUT it definitely makes it a bit louder and sounds better I reckon (i'm running a 2.5" metal cat)

Value for money, considering a h/f stainless internal cat will cost a few hundred, change your headers dude. Will sound heaps better and give you a much better power increase for the money. Unless you have the cash to do both, leave the cat for later. The 3 kw or so is hard to justify for the money unless everything else is done.
