Looking for advice on a headers +cutouts +cat-back system

Trying to get a plan together so I know what to do when I get the extra cash (looking like may-june timeframe), would appreciate any advice from you guys!

Basically I want to do:

2" primary 3" tubing stainless works headers


leading to:

http://www.jreperformanceparts.com/3...tout-pack.html



Then connect the high-flow cats *after* the cut outs (I've heard of people doing this before, though most cutouts I see installed on youtube are after the cat. Any feedback?

Then:
Borla ATAK v8:
http://www.jreperformanceparts.com/b...sive-atak.html

But jannetty only sells the rear axel-back version?

Any advice would be great! A couple things:

This is my next jump forward, after this (sometime next year). I went with 2" primaries as several people suggested that for both the sound I wanted (deeper) and future blower. I plan to do:
-LS3 conversion
-Blower cam
-whipple supercharger

So I want to have headers/exhaust that are "ready".

Not sure what you are looking for in advice. Yes, what you are looking at is doable. I have Kooks headers, hiflos, cutouts on my Solo cat back. I'm not familiar with the JRE cutouts, but it appears there will need to be some "removal" of your cat back to make them fit in line. It will sound mean when you are all done.

I guess I was curious about if the "full size" circular QTPs will fit, I know they mention using the "low profile oval" ones but all the videos I find are using those back past the cats at that angle before it goes to the (mid pipes I think? The long tubes that run back to the mufflers). Also, those have to be welded on, kind of a PITA from a DIY perspective.

With the circular ones they seem to have a sleeve so I can go -> headers output -> sleeve the QTPs on -> slide on cats that normally connect to headers output -> trim cat back approx. length of QTPs and connect to cat

And my thought was I could do this without welding, or is that a naive assumption?

I was hoping someone here would know if the circular QTPs (if installed right after the headers) would have clearance issues.

The Stainless Works headers will work great but the Borla Atak will be very loud and raspy with that combo especially after a blower! :wink:
