Any experience with tuningpros? Header and Cat

I am about to buy a header from tuningpros.com (they also have a ebay user named tuningpros i think)

Spec & Features:

T-304 Stainless Steel with Polish Finish
Gain More performance Due to More Air Flow
3 Stage Polish Shine Like a Mirror
Increase 10-16 Horse Power and Torque
Direct Bolt-On Installation

4-2-1 2 Pieces
2.25" OD and 2" ID

look legit? they sell real megan products, but the guy told me that these are megan replicas, the generic ones. t304 and CNC machined so figured id give em a shot

straight through cat


QUESTION: how much louder will my exhaust be with a high flow straight through cat vs. a normal one?

it sounds like a good plan, but if you gonna boost, you're just going to have to wind up changing all of it out, b/c more than likely its gonna be a 2.5" exhaust, which will be to restrictive for a boosted engine, and the manifold will have to be changed out for a turbo manifold. If I were you, I'd just wait and piece together a turbo kit and do it all at once so your not spending unneccessary money on parts that you're just gonna have to change out.

great minds think alike, I've done that too, did it with my 1st lude, wanted to go N/A then after realizing the amount of money it would take to get the same amount of power out of a boosted engine that cost half of what it would've taken for a N/A engine I had to take everything off and change it all up wasted a good $2k-3k

thanks for the experienced advice guys
i think im going to skip the cat if mike is right about it not fitting, and get just the headers from this cat
I am still getting a 2.5" (you were right about the size) catback by tsudo (best unsung exhaust ever) because it will mostly like be at least a year before i boost my ride, and i mean worse comes to worse ill just pull this thing off after 1-1.5 year and just sell it. though id still like to get a high flow cat or just a test pipe can anyone point me to a cheap one that is a 100% fit?
thanks!
