Oh, darn you Mr. Thomas! I've been lusting after something like you've got for years and here you go and say that when I'm out of time and money!

Mr. Texan: My MY97 OBS also has drums in the rear (even with the ABS). The real downer about the exhaust, though, is the single-port heads that mean there's not nearly the usual selection of high-flow and/or equal-length headers available. I don't actually know, but I suspect having only one port per head would limit the potential improvement of better headers, too

Depending on your inspection situation, you might look into getting a high-flow cat, though, as OEM ones are often a bit of a bottleneck. I don't know if that part of the exhaust is interchangable with EJ25-based systems, but I plan to go custom instead of namebrand anyway since that way I could replace everything behind the headers and still be saving money over just a cat-back.
