    Welded up my own system...cost = $210

    -Jeg's 2.5" Universal X-pipe kit
    -3" to 2.5" flanged reducers
    -2.5" turndowns
    -2.5" Dynomax Bullets (12" long)

    Took about 4 hours...my friend Tom and I did it.

    Basically, we fitted all the pipes in place the way I wanted them, tacked everything (with the reducers bolted to the collector flanges so I KNOW they will line up, resulting in no leaks), welded hangers in place, took it off, and welded it up.

    No interior drone, no rattles, no leaks, it's NOT excessively loud. I can have a conversation with my passenger at 3-4k RPMs without a problem. I guess angling the turndowns the way I did really helps. This is alot quieter than a cutout is....and has an awesome tone to it.

    The welds aren't very pretty since we're n00bs, but they work.

    Cats? Help us all out and run them. But eliminate the mufflers and just use a couple cats if you dont want to lose HP but at least your not killing the air. So the Cats are your muffler and you pass emissions.
