I've had a few people ask me how the JBA headers and H-Pipe fit on my car. Other than the subtle issue I had with the collectors touching the frame rail...the overall fit and finish is fantastic. I was able to resolve the issue by using a prybar to massage the collectors away form the frame. I just installed my Magnaflow Metallic cats. JBA uses an inferior ceramic cat. I attached a few pictures of the final install.

I should also note if you have a lowered car...the JBA exhaust runs closer to the frame that the factory exhaust. You cannot see the headers or pipes from the side of the car :)

About $95 a piece or about $200 for both shipped from Summit. :)
The ceramic cats shipped would have been about $150. I went with your advice Mark on the metallic cats. I can't believe how small they are! Sounds real good now. It got rid of the trumpeting and raspyness too.

Nice! I really like those cats. How much for a pair?

Yeah...I was a bit miffed when I 1st installed them because they tapped the frame rail. The fix only took a few minutes. All in all it was not that bad. I really like how tight they are to the car. I don't have to worry about smacking the headers or cats on speedbumps :)

Same with my KOOKs LTs. I noticed how they dont hang down like alot of LT's do. There up in there. So no clearance issues.

Kooks are awesome. I've heard nothing but good things about their products.

Yes. Im very happy with them. They also sound great. When i jsut had my bassani O/R xpipe and axlebacks the car was very loud. But when i put my KOOKs LTs and KOOKs O/R Xpipe, the car is very loud but in a tone way. Its still got the rasp but has alot more tone as well. I like it alot.

Im waiting on my Drag Radials to come in and then i wanna go to the track and see what i can run. Gunna be going their with 100octane and my tuner told me i can go into my SCT and up my timing by 2 degrees with the 100octane. So i cant wait to see what times i get.

I agree. The Dynacat metallic cats are almost 200 each. I'm happy with the Magnaflows too. 5 year warranty isn't bad either :)
