I guess it just depends on what (if any) kind of emission testing you have and whether or not you want to have the pcm tuned to ignore the rear O2s. Here it's just visual inspection so many people run gutted shells or resonators/test pipes made to look like cats. If you have to pass a sniffer test, you'll want flanges so that you can easily swap back to working cats. If that's the case it might just be easier to go with high flows so you don't have the hassle of swapping back and forth.
