I mastered throttle body synching way before I ever went to the Two Brothers exhaust and no cat plug. The results were good, especially with the zero=zero setting. However, the last 20% (a slight bumpiness in 2nd or 3rd with a very small throttle opening) was finally eliminated with the removal of the CCP.

Hmmmmm... a solution for surging... yet, I'll bet that if your
throttle bodies are out of synch, you'll experience some surging. My
pedantic point is that there's more to eliminating surging than CATs
and CCPs - the entire system should be tuned and adjusted.
