Adding high flow catalytic converter to long tube headers and off road H-Pipe?

I recently purchased JBA SS Long tube headers and JBA Off Road H-Pipe for my 2014 GT/CS. I was wondering if I can add a High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converter Kit in case the off road sound is too loud for my area or for emission test purposes. I've been searching around and i dont think JBA makes a High Flow Metallic Catalytic Converter Kit. Ive seen SLP and Pypes with one and they advertise it can be attached to an Off Road set-up. Any suggestions?

Probably would have made sense to check into that before buying your headers...

they car physically be welded into an o/r x/h. Its that they are meant for. BUT just because you have a CAT doesnt mean you will pass emissions. They can fail you (depending who it is and where you are) just by looking under your car without even doing tests do to aftermarket cats and longtubes. that doesnt mean they will but they could..

if i were you i would just buy a new catted x or h pipe.

Hey Arsenal,

First of all, I see you're an Arsenal fan (duh). Small world! I've been following Arteta since the Barcelona days!

In regards to your exhaust, if you are worried about emissions, personally I would go straight to a JBA Catted X Pipe to be safe. You can weld in an aftermarket cat, but in my opinion, it would be a waste of time unless your Longtubes are already installed.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!
