Yes you should be able to if you have an aftermarket cat. You may beable to have some one weld the flanges on to the stock cat but it would be better just to get a aftermarket one. I ran my headers with a striaght pipe til I got my catback system.

The stoc cat is more restrictive than an aftermarket such as-Magaflo, Catco etc. You would be creating a bottleneck putting in the stocker.

I think I need to clear this up.Thank you guys here is what I am talking about.I am going to add a hotshot header to my Tib.It comes with a catalytic converter on it from the factory.I do not have a aftermarket cat back,all I have is my stock setup.So that is my question if all I do is replace the stock header and leave the stock mufflers on will they connect to each other?Or do I have to wait to install the headers when I buy a aftermarket cat back?Thank you Croc.

I am still in the process of ordering.I am having a problem with their automatic payment.I do not like ordering from places where you can not talk to a live person.Here I am having a problem and I'm ready to buy but can't talk to anybody to get this sorted out. :3_offtopi www.shop.hotshot.com

Nope, this is still ongoing and we are waiting on Flyrydes latest response. He was going to get ahold of them. I emailed Hotshots last week and have heard nothing yet.

By the way if you DO order through hotshot's website it does a "test charge" for the amount of the headders but it NEVER clears. After that test charge comes back good they send you an invoive you do not actually pay for the headders until they ship out. I've also ordered through HS and am more then willing to wait and see what happens as it truly is HotShot or buy a new car time.

Hotshot annoounced that they stopped using vendors. Vendors trying to purchase headers at their vendor rates is no longer available. I don't know what they are doing about vendors that have already payed for items, but I don't think flyryde payed for his order yet, so that's one less vendor to refund. This was to stop ebay and other companies from selling overseas knock-off's and badging them as hotshots. They would even tell their customers to contact hotshot for product problems.

On topic, yes the headers will bolt directly in and work with the stock cat-back.
