    Question Full exhaust help!!

    I have 1998 Camaro. I am completely new to these car and i want to put full length headers on my car with some kind of exhaust like SLP, Borla or magnaflow. I know which headers i want to use they are hooker ceramic coated header. The thing that i don't know is what y pipe to use and if the exhaust that i want to use will fit right into the y pipe. Must of the exhaust systems u buy are cat back systems and i don't know if you have a aftermaket y pipe if the cat get elminated. I want to run a cat and i want to use all my O2 sensors along with this set up. Can some help me with explaining a setup i can use and which exhaust to use. If this is confusing i'm sorry but i am really confused on what to do. Any help is great Thanks Steve

    this is a complete kit with headers and a y-pipe with cats, these are considerably more that kits with no cats. Most setups are designed with the Y-pipe ending in the stock location so pretty much any cat back system will clamp or weld onto the Y-pipe.
    I dont know about hooker but a ton of guys on this site run the pacesetter headers and y-pipe I myself have the FLP setup with the cats.
    another place you can get everything you need from is TSP
    here is a link they also sell header systems with a catted Y-pipe may be a little cheaper for you.

    check with hooker for the y-pipe. they should have catted and catless versions. As for the catback it just depends on how loud you want it. I personally know slp and magnaflow both flow great but the difference is the sound. slp is really loud and magnaflow is quieter. I hope I answered all your questions.

    Is there a big power gain from the pacesetter headers and y pipe because they are a cheaper set up so i don't know if there not as good as something a bit more expensive. If the pacesetters header and y pipe is good then it saves me some money which i don't have much of. THANKS GUYS!!

    Pacesetter is a great budget header, great fitment, and longtubes should produce similar gains compared to kooks, slp, or any other major brand

    I noticed a pretty big difference when I installed mine. Most bolt on mods you won't feel, but I felt it after I installed my pacesetter long tube headers and off road y-pipe.

    Yes there is a noticable power increase, the pacesetters may be some of the less expensive ones, but I have yet to hear a single bad thing about them, I would have purchased them but I ran across a good deal on the FLP setup I got. as far as a catback system goes after looking around and listening to a ton of LS exhaust cars I went with the TSP cat back rumbler system nice and affordable and gets great review also from a great company

    here is a link for a site so that you can listen to just about every kind of exhaust you could think of

    I have heard the SLP loudmouth and it is way loud and raspy and abnoxious I am not a fan of it. But to each his own

    hope this helps you make your decision bro!

    to the OP, you do not need to spend $1500 for headers/y-pipe setup. Pacesetter is a very good brand and you can get Pacesetter LT's/ORY for around $550, sometime less through vendors on the site or Ebay...

    hell i have the Ebay XS Stainless Steel headers that I boughr for $340 shipped and the $100 for an ORY. $440 for my setup...

    You could also opt for the OBX headers. I installed some on my grandpaws truck and they practically fell into place. There only about 495 and have practically straight through cats. VERY free flowing...
