Help the new guy :)

Hey guys,
I'm new here and was looking for some advice! I found this Dynomax cat back exhaust system for a steal! Only $550.89 with Prime Shipping! And after the things I've read about it and the price, I couldn't resist! But now after a bit of searching for headers, I think I found the right one... this JBA 6813S 1-7/8" long tube header with 3" collector. Since this is the first time of buying an exhaust, I have no idea what else I need. I'm pretty sure I also need these mid pipes for connecting the headers to the cat back system but I'm not sure (yes, I'm going catless ). Am I right? And are there any other options for connecting the mid pipes that are less than $255? Do I need to get JBA? And lastly, will all of this connect using only band clamps or will I need to take parts to my friend for some welding? Oh and I'd like to keep as much on Amazon as possible so I can get that free Two-Day shipping!

I love this forum and am looking forward to everyone's feedback!

Thanks,
Brett

Edit: The JBA headers come with "starter flanges" so you don't need to buy the mid pipe if you can weld!

When you order long tube headers you will need a connection pipe. You need to order the same brand, JBA headers will need the JBA connection pipe as they are all custom to each other. The connection pipe will connect your headers to your catback. We sell the JBA system and they will bolt right up to your catback without welding.

Thanks for the info! I visited your website and like the price haha I would be glad to give a forum supporter a sale especially when the price is better than where I was originally looking!

If the headers don't come with them, you will also need the rear o2 sensor harness extensions also.

Well funny story is I've been trying all week to get the XS Power full exhaust system but they are apparently "Currently in production with no estimated completion date" but I found that out after ordering the basics like the rear O2 extensions... I only posted this because I'm not ordering a full system anymore and had no idea what I needed between the cat back and headers and if the connector pipe was interchangeable with other less expensive options...

Texas speed headers are made with 304SS and come with catless mid pipes for the same price as those headers without mids. As for the rear O2 extensions, they are turned off when you tune it. That means you don't need them anymore. They are only there to tell the computer if the cats are working properly. They do absolutely nothing from a tuning standpoint. Most of us just ziptie the car harness wires up so they don't get in the way of anything.

I've been reading up on headers for the past couple of days and have heard great things about everything from kooks to OBX and TSP but with my budget and some more in depth, last minute research into TSP (inspired by you guys), I'm pretty comfortable with my choice of JBA headers and catless mid pipes with the dynomax cat back 3" exhaust system! I'll be sure to post a video when it's on next weekend!

Well I got everything installed yesterday and holy cow does this thing roar! I'm extremely happy with everything and plan on having a video up this weekend! I have to say I was also happily surprised to gain enough horsepower that I could actually feel it after the install of the headers! But thanks to Juiced1 for the help in making sure I got everything right!

Edit: And for anyone wondering yes the Dynomax cat-back exhaust system does have some drone at highway speeds and unfortunately it got worse with the install of the JBA headers so I will be trying out some J-Pipes!

I'm waiting until I get a CAI so that I can get a tune on the dyno! But I'm a huge supporter of J-Pipes now! Just installed one for the 1900 range and one for the 1700 range and now I have no drone what-so-ever! They really do work miracles!

But thanks to Phil from Tampa Tuning for doing a great job with my first tune (unfortunately it was before my headers ) and getting rid of my CEL from the long tube headers!

Do you have pictures of the JBA Ceramic Long Tubes you purchased?

I didn't purchase ceramic because I didn't think it was worth the extra cost considering I would only get like 1 or 2 horsepower if any!
