I just had 2 new cats, a Flowmaster, and a tip custom built for my Range
Rover for $450.00.  I could have gone with a 3" system, but to keep the
cost down he re used some of the original piping which was in good
shape, and since the exhaust manifolds are not any bigger it didn't make
sense to open the system up when it would still be restricted up near
the engine.  PS the he quoted me $550.00 for the complete 3 inch with 2
new cats and a tip.

If you're looking for a canned aftermarket "kit", there wasn't any.
However any competent muffler shop should be able to make you
a custom one by fabbing the pipes and installing the mufflers
of your choice.  You can replace your stock cat with a higher
flow version offered by Techtonics.  Just look for the high flow
unit designed for the early VW Rabbit/Scirocco cars.
