Most headers systems will bolt right up to your Borla catback. Just make sure you don't order a system that connects by the back axles. For example the ARH makes what they call a "long system" that replaces most of the exhaust all the way back to the rear axle back. But again, most systems are headers and a short connection pipe designed to connect to a factory or aftermarket catback system. We have plenty available on our site.

It should bolt on on your cat back. Just make sure you get the right size connecting pipe.

Headers

Most header companies have what they call factory connect and performance connect. Factory connect systems are designed to connect to the factory pipe after the cats, so this sytem will have the headers, high flow cats, and a connection pipe to the stock location under the car. So, if you have a catback system that connects to the factory point then this will work for you. Performance connect systems usually are for companies that make header systems that will only connect to there catback system.

Our system will work with our own 3" muffler, OEM, or any number of the stock replacement mufflers on the market today including the Borla's.

yeah i was just wondering if the collectors on the headers are made to connect to the 2 1/2" pipes of my borla cat back system. i mean when i order headers do i have to specify a 3" or 2 1/2" collector or how does that work?

I have Borla S-type cat-back with Kooks LT and cats. Didn't need anything special. And it sounds great BTW.
