direct fit to factory headers

Does anybody know of a direct fit pipe to the factory headers to delete the cats, or will I have to just weld to straight pipe?

Yeah. Like a pipe that will hook up to where the cats normaly would right behind the headers. Specifically a pre bent pipe that will bolt on and not need to be welded.

aka export pipes.
if they have a different hookup than the stock exh manifolds they will have to be custom to the headers.

alpinedb1,

Why are you deleting the cats?
Because, my top 4 guesses:
1) he can't afford new ones
2) he loves the crappy smell and sound of the exhaust without them
3) he can't wait to feel the huge boost in performance he will experience
4) he's a rebel and loves defying federal laws
