    exhaust combo suggestions

    ok,income tax refund time...i have about $1200 to spend on the t/a's exhaust.i want long tubes,cat-free y-pipe,and probably going to go with a hooker aerochamber muffler(just going to replace the muffler and keep the factory pipe behind the y-pipe) what do you suggest as far as header and y-pipe brand?stainless or coated?and what do i need to install,i don't what to have the car on a lift,taken apart and find out i'm missing something!and what is a reasonable price on a tune to delete the catalyst and maximize power?thanks.

    I've heard lots of people say good things about the cheap ebay stainless headers.
    any cheaper off road Y will work, just might take alittle tweaking to get a good fit.
    I think Frost is still doing mail order tunes for $125 that will work for you.
    good luck man!

    if you wana do it right go with American Racing headers or Kooks, those run about 1100 with the y-pipe, if you dont wana spend that much the best "cheap brand" out there is pacesetters

    word on the bump stop put one on when you do your exhaust so your ypipe don't bang especially w/pacesetters
