What else do I need?

I currently have borla atak axle back and I'm getting stainless power headers with an offload x pipe. What else do I need to complete my exhaust. Also how will this system sound?

Is there anyway to get the headers to not set off a cel? Besides getting a tune

You need a K&N hot air intake as well as some K&N under head cams.



On a serious note, you're good. Should be very loud

I think it's the off road x pipe connection, it's the one to not have cats

To have no cats you need the offraod connection pipe. It has nothing to do with the x pipe. The x pipe is a different section off piping that can be added later. The x pipe is nice upgrade to and most local muffler shops can build one for you. The x pipe will replace the factory pipe from the off road connection to your axle back.

The Stainless Power headers will come with O2 extensions, new header bolts, and re use the factory gaskets.

Thanks for the info! Will the factory l99 h pipe hurt sound or performance? And will headers with off road connection hook straight up to the h pipe?

It will hook right up. As far as sound there is a noticeable difference at WOT with an x pipe. And im not real sure about performance but i wouldnt think it would be noticeable if any. But this is my experience and others may have a different opinion.

And the Stainless Power headers were a breeze to install. No issues whatsoever. And if you run into problems there are plenty of ppl here willing to help

Hmm thanks for all the help, is it worth the money to add a x pipe because I found a package deal on CAI intake and some stainless power headers for like $950 with the cat delete.

Is it worth the money? I think so.

If that's new I think that's a good price. I paid 700 just for the SP headers and offroad connections. But I think the CAI is around $400. So with the money you saved with the package deal is get the x pipe or scoop/ washer bottle relocate combo for the CAI or both

Check with some site vendors to see if they can put a package together for you.Headers, CAI Intake, and scoop/ relocate.

Congrats on the upcoming upgrades.
