Yes, as long as the exhaust system you purchase is made for your car. Basically what will happen, is you will take the current header/cat setup out as one piece. Then when you put the new header on, it will the just the header, then you go underneath and attach the cat to the header, then the cat-back to the cat...

If you buy one of those cheap ones of eBay it will be only a header and you will not have a cat anymore. Just an FYI cause I dont know if thats what you want or not
