Mine was merely 160. Yours is much nicer than mine. I really wanted dual center outlets but they couldn't make the bends

No. They said it's a gamble with removing the exhaust that far forward it may mess with the back pressure

Okay, they don't know what they're doing then. Find a more reputable shop and give it a go.

Standard cat for now. I'm probably going to try the header at some point, which has no cat. I think Focusboy tried it and had no CEL at all. Springs are stock. I added 235/55R16 tires to get some more ground clearance. It's actually sitting about an inch higher than stock, but now I don't scrape in my yard. The tires do fill up the well real well now though.

If that is a traverse Flowmaster 80 it is definitely installed wrong. The inlet pipe in the inner most pipe on the side with two outlets, the two outlet pipes line up with each other. Should look more like this:

What 5.7L of fury sounds like with minor bolt on's.

I'll look at it tomorrow when I get off work. I have a pic in my build thread that shows which one's labelled inlet and i'll compare it to be safe. I'm pretty sure it's like yours already though.
