The only restrictions unless you're pushing a high horsepower build are the cats and muffler. It makes no sense to swap heads or worry about headers.

Secondly - if you're really set on changing to a high-flow cat, buy generic ones and have a muffler shop put them in. No sense spending $800 for a pair of high flow cats when you can get two generic cats bought and installed for $500 less...

PS - By generic, I mean universal cats by MagnaFlow or other name brands...

That is what I was thinking I'm still pricing out stuff and comparing before I make any major purchases I hate to have buyers remorse and that price for Hi Flow cats seemed a bit extravagant to say the least lol

It is definitely over priced. But from what I've read online, these are much better than the "universal" cats you find for 100 a piece. I may be wrong. But they also come with the resonator pipe to take place of your secondary cats. They are also bolt on, no cutting or welding. I'm sure that's a big factor in the price as well. Got mine brand new on amazon, 12 month financing 0% interest. Can't go wrong with that
