    They are only loud at WOT. Idling I can barly hear it. Cursing around town isn't loud at all. My cutout was 10x louder.

    Personally I wouldn't buy the Texas Speed headers, not stainless.

    I have QTP headers and love the fit and finish. I have a SLP PowerFlo Catback on my car. But if u want True Duals we did a nice setup on my friends Formula with some Hooker headers I had sitting around and had my friend who own a Midas make a custom dual exhaust setup with Dynomax Bullets and it sounded awsome and umped at the axle. he charge my buddy like $300 for the mufflers, piping and welding them up with some turndowns.
    You could do it all the way back with some extra piping I thing my friend payed like 4600 to do duals from the header to rear bumper but I think he had spiral flows. Now you can use the muffler you like best and just find a good local shop that does alot of custom work and has the proper machines for bending the pipe and it should be good.

    Texas speeds y sits back from stock location about 4"!! With the 3" diameter in the piping I can no longer run the factory tunnel brace. Plus the driver side hangs down ugly on mine. Custom is the way to go. That and it gets u away from exhaust leaksa

    For comparison, the Kooks Y sits nice and tight to the underbody and matches perfectly with the mid-pipe on the catback. Has not bottomed out and does not hit the underbody. Granted, I spent quite a bit of time adjusting the position on install but the results were worth the effort.

    I decided to go with the Kooks 1 7/8 LT's. I figured for a few more dollars I'd get the SS and the one year warranty with them. I had the same headers on my TBSS a few years back and really liked them. Going with a custom true dual over the axle but haven't decided what mufflers I'm going with yet. I'm 43 and eventhough this is not going to be my DD I don't want an exhaust that's going to be annoyingly loud. Also purchased adjustable torque arm, pan hard bar, sfc's and lower control arms from BMR. Will replace the shocks when I change rotors since they're getting pretty thin. Next up in Nov. will be a cam and maybe heads if I have the money. Question, since I have the LS6 intake (I think) is it really worth it to change out to a Fast intake when I do the cam. Seems like a lot of money (intake and throttle body) for not much of a hp gain but want to put a fairly large cam in.

    Again, thanks for all your help.

    I turn 43 next month... does that mean I'll have to quit running our car with the cutout wide open all the time?

    My kids wouldn't near my truck and that was headers into a y pipe with a fairly mellow Magnaflow. Might have to think about cut outs though.
