Original poster - If you ever plan on getting Long tube headers, I suggest looking on Ls1sounds.com and listening to people's cars who have the SLP loudmouth. It will be very loud and very raspy at WOT. Just make sure a Loudmouth is what you want before you buy it and install it. Also, while on ls1sounds.com.... listen to some Magnaflow, Corsa, even some truedual setups. But, from what I gather, TD's might not be in your mod list.
Ether way, do some researching before buying ANY mod. There's lots of opinion out there.... find your own opinion and buy accordingly.

And, if I had to suggest a catback... not a TD setup... I would say Magnaflow. They have an awesome growl at idle, and sound great at WOT. Also will sound great when your ready for headers.370 CI - Twin 6766 Turbo - Jakes stage 5 4L80E - MWC 9" - Holley Dominator

3- Headers + ORY
5- Port and polish throttle body + bypass the coolant hose

You can do a LOT to a 3800. Im sure there are places where you can buy everything listed in an earlier post. Ive heard UD pullies (on tech) will increase highway mpg by 3.
