The OBX eliminates the cat so an ORP pipe will be needed. Don't know the emissions laws for PA but just so you are aware, this setup will not be emissions legal so you may want to keep your stock setup incase you have to swap it out before an inspection.

ORP=off road pipe, goes between the header and the flex. You can get them at most of the usual focus vendors, newedge, mcnews, etc. but you will need to be sure and get the 02 cheater with it.

OBX header+ORP+Flex+catback in that order.

If the OBX header is a shorty (not a race one) then yes you can use a highflow cat. A race header eliminates the cat therefore makes your car emmisions illegal (depending on the enforcement in your state's laws).
