If your borla is attachable to stock cat, it should attach to AMS HFC or even DEPO test pipe - they should all be similarly shaped to replace just stock cat.

But if the testpipe is 3" and borla is 2.75" at the flange, get an ETS adapter plate.

No worries, what help is telling someone changing an exhaust they already bough? It's financially not smart and in the end exhaust is about sound - I no longer give a shit about power gains Good sound 99% of the time you drive beats the few seconds you need full power every day.

As for plates, if you will be using 3" test pipe, go with 2 adapters - one on each side, and you will need 4 gaskets.

Better, go with HFC(depo is cheap and good), because you know, save the planet a bit and there is no noticeable difference between decent HFC and test-pipe if yor exhaust is still smaller after the test-pipe/HFC section. And your car would not smell funny in traffic(I couldn't stand that smell, so switched to HFC.

I think its like a 3 or 4 HP difference between a good 200 cell cat or less and a comparable sized test pipe.

No reason not to run one unless you're going over 650
