Default Will a Random Tech x-pipe bolt up to long tubes?

I noticed that the Random Technology 2.75" x-pipes state that they bolt to the stock manifolds. Does anyone know if they bolt direct to long tubes? Specifically Belanger Tri-Y's?

Why not get ahold of Thunder racing or the Belanger Header Co?

In my opinion, it will not bolt up, but hey that's just my opinion.

Just out of curiosity, what are you trying to accomplish? If you're looking to drop $800 on this catted x-pipe for HP gains over the stock cats, you're going to be disappointed.

I'm just looking for a catted x-pipe to mate to these headers, and would prefer Random Technology. I sent them an email so we'll see about the fitment.

Are you currently running the headers? What are they mated to now?

They haven't been installed yet but came with a catless x-pipe. I would prefer to have the cats.

Just buy a pair of universal high flow cats from random, magnaflow, etc., and have a muffler shop cut and weld them into your catless x-pipe. No need to buy a whole new mid-pipe just for the cats.

I was originally planning on going with a 3" x-pipe but that will probably be a more effective option to just buy cats. Thanks for the help.
