You will get the most gains from a new downpipe (or headers), and gutting the catalytic converter (illegal) than you will from a cat back exhaust.

Ok so for best overall HP gains and performance, My best bet is to get long headers, a test pipe to replace the cat, straight pipe all the way back to a 3" tip? Or should I use a muffler at the end. I don't care about emissions.

test pipes are illegal, federal spec cars require 1 cat converter, and cali spec requires 3. A test pipe is a straight pipe put in place of your cat converters. Not all states do emission checks, so if yours dont, you will be safe with a test pipe.

you gotta take it off the car, and take out the insides of the cat and put it back on. Easier/faster to just buy a testpipe from www.3sx.com and use that instead. Cats are messy and ****.
