    Met. Sunset Orange
    01 SS

    Congrats on the purchase, I love the color
    I would pick up a lid, " LIds are just about the same so dont worry about brand" headers, off-road y and either keep the slowmaster or replace. Flowmasters sound good but they dont flow very well so thats your call. As far as lt's and ory i went with pacesetter but whatever floats your boat. I would stay away from slp do to the issues with ground clearence. Soemone else will have too chime in on the cam but you will need to post what numbers you are lookin for and if its a dd and so forth and so on.

    Is it an auto or m6, if auto you defiently want to look at getting a bigger stall (torque) converter. A SLP Loud Mouth will make it loud as hell.

    I agree with sunsetorangess, You will get the most bang for your buck out of a lid. Stay away from SLP headers and y-pipe as they have a major clearing issue. If you have money to play with I would reccommend Kooks or QTP headers as the are some of the nicest for F-bodys. The Flowmaster could actually be robbing you of some horsepower, but minimal.
