    Adding cats to Kooks/B&B Setup

    Hi all. I got a smoking deal for a Gen 2, so I will be selling my '05 beauty. I need to add cats to my setup to help the sale, and am requesting some of the collective guidance with how to proceed. I believe any straight 3" to 3" cat connector should work right behind the Kooks collectors, right? It appears Kooks cats are only compatible with the Corsa, does anyone know if the B&B's will mate to the Kooks headers? I see Maryland speed has them on sale. Just want some guidance before I go and purchase a set and end up with issues. My current setup is Kooks 1 7/8 to X pipe to B&B out, pics below and of the '05 for fun.

    Re: Adding cats to Kooks/B&B Setup

    To get Kooks hooked up to a B&B cat back, there must be some cutting/welding that was done. Don't think you're going to get the Kooks catted connector to just pop in without some effort ... not a lot, but some.

    From an SHO to a V1 to a V2? What kind of sadistic freak are you?

    Re: Adding cats to Kooks/B&B Setup

    Rand - thanks for the quick reply, I should have just called my local shop before posting. It'll be a cut and weld right after collector's, about $400. Been running with expired inspection since....Oct 2011!

    Man & Dan - I'll sell the Kooks or the CCW's, for $20K and throw the car in with it! seriously, not planning to part it out at all, need to sell here quickly, hopefully, to put $ down on the Gen 2.

    ----------

    BJS - One that seems to be following a set of large footsteps laid in front of me...I need bigger shoes.
