Will I have problems installing a CAT back on a WS6? 3" pipe.
A regular TA has smaller than 3 inch pipes for exhaust, right?
Since the WS6 already has 3 inch pipes will this cause any problems installing a CAT back? Or will the cat back pipe slip right over a 3 inch factory pipe.
I've never heard any complaints about this, so I just thought I'd ask.

the only difference from a regular t/a and a ws.6 is the hood, wheels, and i think shocks.

The ONLY difference from those 2 are that the tips are nice and polished and the muffler on the SS/WS6 are smaller... ever notice the nicer rumble from a SS over a Z28 OR a WS6 over a formy? I only notice the muffler sizes b/c my sister has a 02 WS6 and I installed SLP LM cat-backs on both of them. I'm thinking about putting her stock cat-back onto my 89 RS D.D. with my stock Z28 tips.
The only problem I've ever heard of when installing cat-backs is sometimes on the 4inch systems... if you don't have the pipes angled correctly when going over the axle, you might get a clunck when going over bumps and dips in the road, though again, you could get that with any multi piece cat-baci i suppose...
