OK, I'm wondering if anyone can help me out on a few of my questions! I have a base model and I'm thinking of doing the Type S head swap. As it stands, I have a Tanabe SRM installed on my car. I also have a Carsound cat that I'm waiting to install.

First, is there any other seperate piping in between the headers and the cat (ie. downpipe)? Or is there just the piping that is welded to the cat that connects the headers to the exhaust mid pipe? If so, if I were to do the head swap and use the Type S headers, couldn't I modify the piping used to connect the cat from the headers to the exhaust so that I don't have to modify the exhaust piping?

Any feedback would be appreciated! :thumbsup:

Why not just keep the entire base exhaust manifold?

So if the headers bolt up the same, does that mean that the only difference between the the 2 types of headers is the collector? I have DC headers for the base model that I could use if that is the case. My question still is there any other piping in between the headers and cat? I'm assuming that the order of exhaust piping is headers to cat to midpipe to muffler. Am I correct? Anyone else with feedback?

I already have to do mandrel bending in order to install the cat since it doesn't include any piping. It won't be any more work on top of what I have to do anyways. They would just have to bend it slightly different. Oh, and I have the shorty.
