Magnaflow cats plus Borla Exhaust?

Time to play. I've got an 2006 w/80K on it and looking to replace the stock exhaust with Magnaflow pre-OBDII cats and a Borla exhaust. Has anybody out there done this and how did it work out for you? Just not ready to drop the money on headers too.
Thanks!

Personally, I don't see much point replacing your stock cats with Magnaflow cats unless your cats go bad.

Driver's side cat has collapsed, so figure doing it all at once (and keeping the parts just in case) is best.

Not sure how the cost of Magnaflows compare vs something like Catco for instance so depends on whether you are looking for high flows. I love the sound of my Borlas though, even with stock manifolds and mids.
