Kooks headers and high flow cats question

Anyone running kooks headers on a A6 SS? I have a borla s type cat back and thinking about Installing some kooks headers and high flow cats.. Not 100% set on kooks yet though.. Gonna keep looking around.. But, Any tips I should know about before hand? And would this be a "good" combination? Open to any suggestions y'all might have.. Thanks

Should sound awsome and perform well. You will need a tune with long tubes.

2010 Inferno Orange 2SS/RS M6, Black leather, Sun roof, OBX Headers, Halltech cai, Mike Norris tuned.

Lot of members from our club run Kooks with high flow cats and they sound awesome. You will need a tune though. You cant go wrong with kooks! They build a awesome product.

Will be having Kooks LT headers, High Flow Cats and Corsa Exhaust installed and tuned within the next two weeks on a 2010 2SS/RS. As well, adding CAI, lowering car 1 inch and adding the Hurst short shifter package.
Will provide update once I get some results of the "change" from a stock to tuned car.

My dad had the borla S catback with the kooks and it sounded awesome. It had a nice sound to it especially at WOT

Can't comment on this particular combination but I had Kooks LTs, HF Cats and Street Sleeper exhaust installed on my L99 about a month after I got the car and couldn't be happier. Was very concerned with drone on these cars but never had it regardless of speed or RPM. I've never regretted getting this combo.

Make sure you go with the 1 7/8 LT. Kooks are a great choice!

Kooks are one of the BEST makers of headers period.

ARH makes a great header, just ask Jekyl as his setup is superb sounding.

Both are American made and I hear very few complaints about fitment, if any.

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

Killing 5th gens like it is my job.
