Default Looking for some catback info

I'm currently running a Cobb DB with stock catback. Ideally I would like to get a Cobb catback but i'm not opposed to others. I'm looking to see if anyone can provide some info on other catbacks that might bolt directly up to the Cobb DP. I'm thinking that most of them might require an adapter but i'm not sure.

Any catback designed to fit your car will fit your DP. The DP adaptor is for 3" DP's to bolt to a stock catback. In essence, your Cobb DP already has the adaptor integrated in it's design, so it will fit to any catback that's meant for your car.

Right, I understand that. However, there is a difference of flanged vs donut gasket. I'm looking for catbacks that are designed to bolt right up to the donut gasket style of the Cobb downpipe without needing some adapter.

If your looking for a dount gasket end, I suggest borla and Megan racing catbacks.
I thought Cobb downpipes had flat gasket ends? Correct me if I'm wrong.
Also check out the general FAQ section where Unabomber made a thread about exhaust regarding the ends

It has the donut style flange. Some people bolt their 3" CB to the COBB DP via a flat gasket, others use the donut gasket, it can work both ways. If you don't have a full 3" catback, you will need the donut gasket.

Or you can use two gaskets and go flange to flange like I have done with my Perrin highflow cat (lower part of DP) and stock midpipe with resonator. GS and others sell a donut adapter, but I have not needed it yet.

I currently have the cobb DP and stock catback. I would love to get a cobb catback but cobb is REALLY proud of their exhaust. No doubt its worth it but I'm trying to find a catback that is a little more affordable that will still bolt right up to my DP. If I could find a decent deal on a used cobb catback I would snatch that up.....but we've all seen how quickly those move once they hit the classifieds.
