Default Best 3" Downpipe with a Cat

I have only found two:
1. TurboXS, but it would require a custom fabricated pipe to hook up to my exhaust.
2. AVO, anyone have any input on these?

Any other input would be appreciated. I want it to be 3" and have one cat (since it would eliminate 2 of them, and I will be getting an uppipe as well).

Thanks,
Mike

Might help if we knew what exhaust parts you currently have.

I was under the impression that the TurboXS dowpipe/midpipe would bolt to most mufflers. They have a stealth Turbo back exhaust system which bolts right to the 2.5" stock muffler. You can get that with or without a hi-clow cat.

You could also probably get a custom made mid-pipe from a muffler shop relatively cheap.

Sorry about that.
I have a stromung downpipe (but am getting rid of it so I can get a 3"), and the HKS Ti catback exhaust. I will also be getting either a turboxs or pde uppipe.

The turboxs doesn't look like an option as it hooks up to an axel back, not a cat back.
The only catted system looks like the AVO (that is all I found). Are there any others and is the AVO any good?
Thanks.
Mike
P.S. I may just go with a HKS and be catless, but I don't know if I really want to do that.

the turbo xs downpipe is 4". its a huge piece and i always get "wows" and "ahhs" when people see it. i think you can get just the downpipe, the cat pipe or race pipe seperately. i'm not too sure with the avo one, but i'm extremely happy with my turboxs.

We currently have three options for downpipes.

1.) Catless.
2.) Hi flow 3" Ceramic Cat.
3.) Super Hi flow 3" Stainless Steel Cat.

Please feel free to email or post on-line for more details.

If I was to get the turboxs, then I would have to buy the entire stealth back and have a custom 3" pipe made in order to make it work. They will not sell them separately, I tried.
AVO, I have been talking to you, and if I do get one from you, it will be the stainless one. The thing holding me back is the price.
Any others?

I got a quote. They were too much. AUD is 1400 for the Stainless Steel one with a cat, and 900 I think for the non SS one.

I have an MRT downpipe with a cat that was custom made for Altasports, which I noticed on their website no longer offer. It fits any cat back systems. I use it with the HKS Carbon/Ti cat back, and love it. Great sound and performance (according to my butt dyno). I believe if you contact MRT they will have or make one for you, however; they are expensive. Cost me $650 + . Cant remember exactly.

Yeah, at that price I would get the turboxs and have a midpipe fabricated. <sigh> I am not going to get what I want, I don't think...
