Don't think the ovals will restrict much considering your exhaust ports are oval. They prob match up perfect.

I am looking at buying SW long tubes with high flow cats (because I will be living in an emissions state) and I have Roush axle-backs....I am thinking of an h-pipe to keep the low growly sound....what would be the best way to complete my exhaust?

I dont care what anyone says, but without cats your car is going to be LOUD. There is no deep sound. Its just straight NASCAR all the way until 6th, then you might get the mellow deep sound. H-Pipe or X-Pipe, resonators or not. But with the Roushes, and no cats, then you better be prepared for the loudest most obnoxious car on the road. The only way i know im burning rubber is from the smell, smoke, and often sideways drift of the tail end. Definately, not the screaching even with a good set of streets. The exhaust just over powers the sound. Roush, H-Pipe, and no-cats is awesome unforgiven power, that feels and sounds like your on the track 24-7. I can't even get to my house in peace (10 min drive) without someone thinking im challenging them. Look dude, im just trying to get home. Take your mini-van, 350Z, civic elsewhere, before i embarass you and your wife. It's fun, but not at 0500 in the morning or making those late midnight runs to the store.

I just looked on the SW site and it looks like the x-pipe is included when you get the high flow cats....would I need anything else to complete my exhaust?

I ran short of time last night so i put the original back on. However, i did find out that the engine does need to be lifted about a inch for factory header to slide out, as well as the steering column removed, which is simple. The bolts are easy to get to and rust free for me so no issues there. The starter needs to be dropped to take out the pass. header. My O2 sensor is being a PIA on factory header. In order for the longtubes to fit from underneath the engine has to be supported and engine mount bracket removed. i got to that point and stopped. There are three engine to header bolts that have to be swapped in order for the BBK longtubes to seat properly. Once i get off work i will start installing the headers now i know what problems ill be running into. Im pretty sure ill be cutting my overaxle pipes or h-pipe to ensure proper fit as in hopes that my roushes arent sticking out to far in the back. Ill keep those who are interested posted on the progress.

I agree 100%. Mine was ok before I lost the cats, now it's obnoxious. Every other vehicle I've lost the cats on has been loud but still sounded deep/throaty. Then again they were all pushrod V8's too..LSx's and Dodge Hemi.

Does anyone know if reducing the length of the over axle pipe is required when installing longtube headers with cat deletes and h-pipe? I have a feeling that i will be about a foot too long, which is not a problem. I can cut and clamp, but wanted to know if anyone ran into this problem in the past.

Shouldn't have to shorten anything as long as you bought the shorty midpipe to go with the LT's

Just buy the shorty and keep your exhaust system modular. So it's as easy as bolt in if you ever change. No need for fab work.

Yea I would recommend buying the one that goes with the pipe, much less headaches and no fabrication

Yeah, so I pulled the longtube out of the box, and then grabbed my stock cat and tried to get a idea of how screwed i would have been if i went ahead with the install. Come to find out they do not pair at all. So getting the BBK shorty midpipe is a must!! Anyone interested in a JBA H-Pipe with cat deletes???

Ok, so Thursday was the longest time i have ever been with my car. I had attempted to install the long tubes i have since my shorty xpipe came in. What a mistake!!! I had the engine lifted, the driver side longtube installed, and i could NOT remove this single engine mount bolt on the passenger side. I have every swivel and extension needed. I spent what seemed like my whole life trying to get it off. So, in my unsuccessfull attempt, i put everything back the way it was and said screw it. I know how its done but Im not waisting my time. Im going to bring it to a shop and just have them loosen that one bolt for me, so there wont be any show stoppers next time. The driver side header fit great. Had to take out three header studs, and replace with supplied bolts because the stock studs were too long and prevent the new header from clearing. It just sucks knowing i was so close yet i have to uninstall and do it all over again!!!

So what exactly was the problem? You couldn't loosen it or you couldn't get a tool on the nut/bolt?

Post a pic if you can. I'm about to do LT's and I want to know what I'm in for.

Theres a total of 5 bolts on the engine mount. Two top, two bottom that bolts to engine, and one that bolts to the chassis. Of the top bolts, the one closest to front of the vehicle which also has a grounding cable attached to it was the one i was unable to get a hold of. Before you attempt, just crawl under and take a look. Well its a blind bolt, so seeing it is going to be the hard part.

So you have to remove the mount to install the LT's? Would it have helped if you lowered the K member?

Yes mounts have to be removed in order for the headers to squeeze in. I lifted the engine as far up as the transmission allowed me too.

I am using o2 extensions

Don't use the extensions they are a waste of money and have been causing issues. Beefcake blew a motor due to this. The factory O2's will reach just fine if you unhook the harness from the tranny. I bought a set,came across this info and sent my extensions back for a refund. If anything this will save you some money and the piece of mind of having the stock O2s.
