Default JBA Cat forward headers and tune

I was looking to place an order for JBA cat forward headers for my 2012 Ram, I have done some searching and have read that people are having issues from time to time with their truck running poorly and losing low end torque without a tune. From what I can gather the tune issue is with the secondary O2's and the elimination of the cats on the longtubes. (I've had this issue with previous newer vehicles I've modded as well). Having a 2012, from what I can gather, there are no tune options for me yet.

My question is, since the JBA cat forwards do not eliminate the cats, thus, do not affect the secondary O2's I can run safely without a tune, and since I'm not eliminating the stock cats, I will not lose quite as much low end torque?

Searched quite a bit and did not find this specific question asked, sorry if its already posted here somewhere.
