Ok so what comes in the collector pipe kit?

Just two small pipes that cross-over to connect to each other. They replace the catalytic converter, so they go from the headers to the mufflers (cans). I guess they cross over (connect to each other) for stability only.

No they would equalize back pressure in the system. Makes sense.
