    or if your on a budget just forget the muffler and change the rest of your exhaust and replace the stock muffler with just a pipe. that's the course I took, sounds badass imo

    no you don't need the borla y pipe, any y pipe will do(provided the inlet/outlet sizes match) then again even the inlet/outlet size doesn't matter as long as you get a muffler shop to weld them on and not bolt them on. X pipe's provide the best flow but that won't work with a borla catback. If your sticking to y pipes any will do. realistically you don't need anything bigger than 2.5-3in. just stay away from the slp y pipe and make sure it's stainless steel. I bought one and i'm regretting it.

    power wise there isn't much difference, your gains will depend on your supporting mods. SLP LM1 is well known for being the most free flowing/loudest. but if you plan on headers later on they sound like shit. IMO borla/corsa is the highest quality and I love the unique sound they each offer, you can't go wrong with either of them. I have the borla adjustable and absolutely love it. IMO the magnaflow is way too quiet but it's a quality catback.

    catbacks are expensive a muffler with a turndown, who wants all that extra weight anyway?

    so any suggestion in setups i like those borlas i liek the sound they are expensive i dunno what route to take im still researching i want best flowing, so the headers could i buy painted headers and get them coated?? or is it better to just buy them coated? im still looking for it all headers,y, and exhaust i know any y will work as long as the fitting are right im goign with an offroad pipe..headers im undecided, and exhaust well that for sure i have no freakin clue..

    more and more question emerge sorry guys,

    1) are these any good?
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-99...item23039fafc3

    2) im finding all sorts of y pipes that say are only designed lets say the eldenblock y pipe says its only designed to fit their headers is that true or bs? because they all say they are a 3" pipe i also like the stainles flowtech pipe now will any fit?

    3) ok should i go with ory pipe? and how about race style headers? can someone explain the differences im still reading the stickys btw so i might find answeres if not can someone clear that outa the way...

    thank you all for your patience

    don't worry about the y pipe. any stainless steel will do. as long as your getting a shop to put them on for you they can weld and cut to get it to fit. if your using the car for the street then don't get race headers.(i don't think they have the proper bungs and such..i'm not sure on that). If inspection is an issue then don't get an ory. If you want to do the install on your own then just buy a package deal for the headers(headers and y pipe included) that's the safest route. If you want to save weight as c5z28 mentioned then just buy the headers w/ a X pipe and dump it b4 the rear axle(you'll get the most power this way). I think TSP offers a package like that but i'm not sure. Or get the Y pipe and dump it with or without a muffler.

    the edelbrock y pipe would fit right onto the borla catback and the rest of the stock piping just fine. the problem comes when you get long tube headers. That will require a custom fit in. the ebay ones are fine as long as they're stainless steel, I actually plan on buying a pair real soon. but don't use the shit paper liner that comes with it find something better.
