What first: precat delete or J-pipe?

Sorry if this has been covered before, I'm sure it has but I couldnt find it to save my life. I'm curious what I should do first. I want to eventually put both on the car but wanted to start out right. My old car could come with precats and when you installed a ypipe like our jpipe, the gains from the ypipe were lessened with the precats still on there. Price isnt really an issue since they are about the same, but I dont want to invest in both at the same time. Anyone have any thoughts about what to do first? Does it even matter? Does one increase sound or performance over another?

hey you asked, and that's my suggestion. I'd save up money and do both at the same time. making one part of your exhaust flow better with a bottleneck still in existence won't do much for you. Hit up Richie see if he work out a deal for both.

makes sense. I suppose even if I didnt buy both at the same time I could always just wait to install them both. I didnt consider a package deal either. That would be well worth it. I guess I asked in case the PCD was benificial more for boosted applications.

I have just precats on and it's still beneficial. But what nighthawk is saying still makes perfect sense. Bottle neck holding back power. Cannot wait to strap on jpipe v3 arriving sometime this week. With precats on only, u can hear the air being jammed up in the jpipe on wide open throttle. So if I would have to get one before the other it would be the jpipe. It's very simple to install and from the feedback you gain some strong low end torque and midrange power.
