youd be better off with a shorty and a high flow cat. the point of the race header is to ditch the cat. ud be defeating the race headers sole purpose by throwing a cat on. also there is a huge fine for tampering with cats and itd be hard to find a shop to cut up a hi flow cat and get it on to your race header. not to mention the cost. def a waste.

Dave thanks for that insightful and obviously bogus comment.
Your welcome. Also I forgot. I had some weight reduction and car was down to about 2500 lbs.

What do you guys launch at? I tried 3000 rpms and I spun the shit out of my tires. Also, do you guys just ride the clutch or drop it?

Seeing is I don't have slicks, or even drag radials at the moment, I have to ride the shit out of the clutch to attempt to get a good launch, rpms @ 4000 or so, my 60' times are still like 2.5 or worse

ride the clutch till your power band almost starts. when u hit it right, when u pop off the clutch ur wheels will chirp (not spin) then ur almost ready to shift to second.... but if u have more mods like focal, launch will be completely dif. same with other mods like t/b and whatnot.

I have big problems with wheelspin ( tyhus the lame 15.9), Thats why I want to get out one more time before the end of the year, it should do better than that, I can launch my bike pretty hard, but the focus was giving me fits. . I just don't have the technigue down yet!

Ok, Ultegra guess you mean 1/8 mile times, for the 14.86 it was 9.814 I think not sure though. Usually in the 9.8's if I remember, haven't been to the tack in awhile. The car goes thru the traps at 92 mph, well between 91 and 92 usually.
