    What's your ultimate goal?

    I'd recommend Pace Setter ceramic coated headers and a 3" Y or X pipe for now. They are cheap but get the job done.

    In that case, I'd recommend....perhaps, American Racing Headers or some Texas Speed headers. With that much HP, you should be able to find those brands in 1 7/8". I think some even make 2" headers.

    Up to you and your budget. If you are on a budget, the Pace Setters are pretty dang cheap.

    cheap to expensive
    ebay option racing headers
    pacesetter
    hooker
    kooks
    qtp
    etc.

    If you go duals and plan to go over the axle the biggest that will fit is 2.5" you can go under I would just say to either end at the axle or make sure you can unbolt it if you decide to switch out springs etc. If you went duals.

    Your talking to a guy with 3" exhaust it works just fine although for clearance you might step down to 2.5"
    Sponsor for what?

    Okay maybe I need to be more clear what are you sponsored for, why you, what do you do for the sponsorship, auto x, road race, drift? Call me slow but I had a hunch the sponsorship wasn't for jc penny's.

    its called uth performance. do drag racing but for most part street racing. and is their a difference between a Ricer and just a fast ass import. because i owned a twin turbo 300zx that had 500 horse power. but sold it to get this car.

    Just get some MAF cleaner and clean your MAF. Anyone on here will tell you to stick with your stock MAF and just clean it.

    After market MAFs are over rated and a lot of headache when they don't go so well.

    You need to look into the possibilities with the stock cubes. People have gotten 500rwhp with 346ci. So many possibilities.

    I changed my MAF and had no problems, thankfully. I just wish I had spent the money somewhere else on the car. Aftermarket MAFs don't do anything for a basic bolt on car.

    Man who cares about the trash talkers. When you start going one up on everyone and vice versa, you're not getting anywhere cuz there will always be someone that can beat you. It turns into a money game, whoever's got the most money will come out with the most modded fastest car. The LS1 cars just happen to be some of the fastest stock cars ever made. The only time people feel like their car is not good enough is when they hang out with people with similar stuff. You should mod your car only if it's going to satisfy you, not to prove a point. Maybe just my take, but that's how I think.
