    Since you are upping the ante with the cam, the 1-7/8" Kooks headers are the way to go. I would also utilize the Kooks high flow catted Y, rather than the Texas Speed Y. I run this exact setup on our car. Strongly recommend that you include in your purchases a set of new GM exhaust gaskets, Stage 8 locking header bolts (stainless), and a set of DEI heat sleeves on your ignition wires.

    What Jeff said. You are going to push enough air to take advantage of the 1 7/8" tubes and Kooks headers are some of the best on the market. Just remember that you get what you pay for.
