well my exhaust has been waiting around for too long now and its time to throw it on....so far...what im doing is 2.25 cats after headers....getting together into a 2.25 x2 magnaflow/3" out....then splitting again behind diff to 2.5". what im thinking now is selling my 2.25 cats, and buying the MILs for the o2 sensors and running cat less....my question is, would that be enough back pressure so i dont loose low end torque???

Pretty much no. But a set of gears and/or a new TC will solve that problem, and solve it in a BIG way...

it just depends on how long it will be until you can get a TC or gears. If its just a few months, i'd go ahead and go catless. but a year or more..you might want the cats.

btw..where will you get the MIL eliminators?

With a basically stock car (non SC'd or heavy nitrous'd) a set of 2.25 or 2.5 inch pipes with matching converters should give you plenty of backpressure for your low end torque. And if you're concerned that you'll still have too much pressure, have a pair of cutouts installed in front of the cats so you can dump it and have full flow when you feel like it...
