im goin to buy the powerworks for my car in a couple of months, but i just want to see if the exhaust setup im thinkin of will work good with it.

header- jba shorty (already have it)

cat- rt hiflow

flex- 2.25 ss

flex back- borla 2.5

just tell me what u think, if i shouldn't do this setup or other options.

If your not going to have a 2.5 flex, etc., I don't think there would be a whole lot of gain in a 2.5 exhaust. I personally would go with SVT headers, I cant think of the company that just made their own cat, but their cat, 2.5 flex and the 2.5 SVT Borla, basically a full SVT exhaust.

yea i talked to the guy at mcnews and the borla exhaust starts at 2.25 and goes to a 2.5 so i thought maybe i should just get a 2.25 flex and the rt cat is only 2.25 piping also

I would lose the shorty header and go with the SVT set-up as well. The guys at Mcnews are decent and will steer you in the right direction.

FWIW long tube headers make more power.
