wow. that shennanigans sounds like more trouble than good. I'm guessing the Tanabe b-pipe is the same diameter that the HKS axle-back is. If the Tanabe b-pipe fits with your stock axle-back, then it will work with any exhaust since the HKS is meant to bolt up to the stock b-pipe. Just a matter of reversing the principle. If the tanabe pipe bolts up to the stock, the HKS will bolt up to the Tanabe, basically.

I wouldn't mess with cutting out the resonator on the Tanabe. Its already higher flow than the stock b-pipe and the fit is probably really nice as it is. my greddy cat-back sticks out a little past the stock bumper skirt, and it doesn't look trashy at all. I would at least fit it all on first and see how it looks before you go chopping up aftermarket pipes that you can't put back together again. :wink: The HKS tips (at least the drager II) usually sit forward a little farther than other aftermarket axle-backs, so you should be okay, even with the cwest kit you are describing. (but i have no knowledge of bodykits though. try stuff out first. it's just 2 bolts to take the parts off :) )
