Are you doing this to eliminate the cat? Where to where are you going to straight it?

Yeah, it can. But it won't sound very good. It is a good idea to keep the cat on gm V6 for ricey sound supression.

you can run it straight from the headers/manifolds back in single 3" pipe and over the axle to a muffler or not. I agree, cat probably not costing you much in power unless the car has a bunch of miles and needs replacing, and it'll sounds better with cat in place.

where is this exhaust system at excatly????

if you look at the panhard bar on your car it is a straight piece that goes diagonal from one side to the other
your original 3inch pipe runs over it at one point
this new panhard bar has a flat spot in it where you can stuff 2 3inch pipes through it where the one 3inch pipe used to go
that was the one spot holding our cars back from being dual exhaust
