Pre 06 headers or cat eliminating y-pipe?

I am looking to do an exhaust on a budget at least until i get some experience and can afford a full system. So my question is would i be better finding some pre-cat headers or cheap race headers on ebay and buying a slip-on to go with them or should I cut my current pipe and weld/clamp in a y-pipe? Also any discussion on slip-ons that people have had experience on would be much appreciated.

Edit: Also just found MJS performance I may go this route, are there any good slip-ons with silencer packages for these pipes?

A 2nd gen header is gonna be your cheapest option. It'll require a little more 'custom fitting', but they work great.

Yeah you're right about it being the cheapest. I think I'm just gonna bite the bullet and do MJS headers with a GYTR carbon slip-on and flash tune. Just gonna have to save up and buy things one at a time... Anyone know about the GYTR slip-on, does it have much of a silencing quality at all? I dont want this to be too loud... Also how are the quality of the MJS headers?

MJS makes some decent stuff-- As far as the GYT-R, unless you like the look of it specifically, I'd pick up something else. They're just "ok".

I do like the look plus the price and carbon is nice, any griefs with it or suggestions of other affordable slip-ons?

I don't have a problem with them-- hell, I'd own one... But there's just better stuff out there, that's all. If you dig it and it's in your price range then go for it.
