Catless Power Drop?

Hey guys a little bit of a story here, but I am trying to see if anyone else had a similar problem.

I started out with stock dp with resonator and muffler delete, using a stratified 93 flash tune. the car felt great had an awesome torque punch and all.

Then everything changed when the fire nation attacked. lols sorry, but really I ended up getting an MBRP catless turboback, so a full system. I ended up once again going with a stratified flash tune to update with my new components. Now I am not trying to flame Stratified, they provide great services.

After this new setup however I felt my car was lacking in the power department. Now I don't mean it wasn't hitting boost it was still powerful, but it just didn't feel like that punch it had was there anymore.

I ended up contacting stratified on this and they reviewed my data-log only to find nothing wrong with it. I was stumped and craving more power, So I decided to try another tuner for comparison. I ended up with an ethanol blend tune from Deadhook Motorsports after reading the crazy dyno numbers, We aren't done with the process yet as I am on my 3rd revision, not sure how many more we go through but still even with the e30 it doesn't feel as powerful as it was when I had my stock dp and exhaust.

So in the end I guess I am wondering if anyone has had similar problems when going catless, and again this is not ment to be a tune flame. I appreciate all stratified and dhm have done for me so far.
Thank you for the input!

Probably doesn't feel as fast because it is louder now. I've been through that with multiple cars. The last car when I went catless it felt slower but made 13 more hp on the dyno.
