As I venture further and further into FI, I was told vibrant cats are needed or I risk failure. I've heard this 3 times now but from coyote guys.

I have BBK ceramic LTs, matching off road BBK H pipe with Magnaflow spun cat metallic core cats (59956) welded in and stingers. Going catless isn't an option for me as I hate fumes and trumpeting. With my future power goals being 400hp, is this something to really be concerned about? These cats run 358 each! I paid $100 each for the Maggies. I bought metallic core for the pure fact of being FI in the future.

How much boost are you planning? I'v never run Vibrant cats but I've been running a ProCharger at 8.9 psi for many years and around 130,000 miles with BBK LTs and high flow cats. I haven't had any problems with the LTs or the mid-pipe. I don't have any idea why people are saying you have to go catless. It isn't true.

STD corrected I'm very close to 400 rwhp. Assuming a 15% loss through the drive train the SAE corrected 388 rwhp becomes 450 bhp. I don't think you will have any problem achieving your goal with the exhaust you have.

P.S. All my mods are in my garage.

pretty sure the vibrants are spun metallic cats just like the magnaflow ones, I have the same magnaflow cats on my car 12 psi just shy of 500whp no issues for the past 3 years or so, I race the **** out of my car, I think you will be fine.
