Headers

Is there any o/r catted x pipes that will bolt up to longtube headers. I'm wondering if I'm stuck with shorties if I go that route.

I looked on AM and all the catted x pipes look like they bolt up to shorties.

Re: Headers

I just caught this today, I guess I missed it yesterday, but the issue talked about is not that difficult, you may need to change X pipes, but nothing too diffficult: When I had my first Exhaust change, I had used Magnaflow X pipe, then when I added Long Tube Headers, I needed to change the X pipe to one that fits with the Long Tube Headers, the easiest solution was getting the Brand that matched with the Headers, So I added BBK Long Tube Headers to the BBK X pipe and put the old Magnaflow X pipe in my Garage. My X pipes are all Off Road so they do not have Catts, o/r means "Off Road" which represents NO Catts. I'm sure the same scenario Above, reflects Catted X pipes also.

That was dumb of me to put o/r lol. I'll look into manufacturer sites to see which I like best. I've found a ton of systems for o/r x pipes, but less towards catted; most people don't need cats so why bother. My main thing is even though it's catted, I know some set ups aren't CA legal.
