are you looking to just replace the cats or have a whole new system put in? The current bends off of the exhaust manifolds and the stock cats are terrible. Magnaflow actually makes an entire replacement 'Y' pipe (w/ cats) that is 1/4" bigger. But its depends what you want, and as a side note, replacing exhaust on our cars is not going to yeild alot of extra horses.

Cat names are free. It's the cat that can cost you some money.

im lookin to put 2.5" true duals from the manifolds back, and weld up some high flow cats parallel to the ground just downstream from the original cat positions. and have a di/do magnaflow resonator with no mufflers out the back.

I went with Magnaflow cats - or maybe it was the Magnaflow off brand - I don't remember which. Either way, they had good flow and did what I needed

then putting 2.5" pipe off a stock manifold is a waste of money

dual 2" is fine for stock setups.. maybe 2.25" if you wanted to push it. anymore is a waste of dough

get the magnaflow kit.. flows better, looks nicer and is easily expandable later on
