Good stuff. I love my JBA, and YES Having a header (shorty) w/ a Stock cat is pointless, cuase the cat will restrict your air flow. I have a High flow cat and I ZOOM down the street, nice and loudly too :) its great.

The kamikaze race header would make better use of a 2.5" flexpipe. Using the bosal one which is 2.25" isn't a great idea.

Hey! I've got the same exact Trubedz exhaust package as you Silver. I wanted to ask someone if I would be able to directly connect the 2.5 in piping to the 2.25in flex. Would these go right together, or would I need some type of fitment piece in between to fit the two different diameters of pipe together? An answer would greatly be appreciated. Hey, that Trubedz package sure was a good buy wasn't it!

Thanks.

Theres no point in putting a 2.5" flexpipe together with a 2.25" cat back exhaust system.

Zarelli just go with a 2.25" flexpipe.

Excellent Job on all these info forums you've done. To bad I didn't find these till after I already knew this stuff But nonetheless Good Job I think you should do one on cams and cam gears too. That would really help

Are the OBX headers on ebay any good? They look nice and the price would save me some money and get a Eibach suspension if they are the real deal.
