Borla ATAK cat back question

Hi all,

I recently purchased the Borla ATAK cat back setup minus the x-pipe. The price was significantly less than what the axle backs go for by themselves so I pulled the trigger. The plan was to just install the AB's for the time being.

Naturally, 48 hours later I'm second guessing myself and wondering if I should just pick up a stock-length x-pipe and install the whole system. I've read that going with an x-pipe adds rasp which I don't want but then the handful of YouTube videos with this setup don't sound too bad.

I have no plans for headers in the future.

Thoughts/experience/recommendations?

I heard a local guys cat back. All I can say is wow it was loud and mean. I don't remember it being too raspy.
