    You picked inexpensive headers, an ORYP = raspy sound and one of the most expensive exhausts (sounds great if you like loud). Should run you about $1500 plus installation. I would substitute Jet Hots for the Pacesetters and have a high quality exhaust system from front to back.

    Jet Hots are no better than pacesetters. I have Pacesetters, ORY, and GMMG and let me tell you, it will "make old ladys shit their pants and mothers will pull their children off the sidewalks" when your coming down the street.
    That was a quote from another member a few months back that made me decide to try the setup and that is probably the best explanation for the sound of this setup.

    well just for the fact that jet hot cmes with 3 year finish warranty and lifetime corrosion warranty is worth it alone, also i have heard from muliple sources along with my local fbody specialist that pacesetters armor coating is not the best in the world, not to mif it or anytghin pace's are good budget headers but i would go with the jet hots.

    My brother just bought Jet Hot L/t's and a Jet Hot coated ory-pipe, o2 extensions shipped for about $800. GMMG will set you back 700-800 minimum.

    pacesetters and y pipe= about 500

    hooker exhaust = about 300

    install and dyno tune about another 800.

    above will net you about 40 rwhp.

    If you get pacesetters, dont get their ORY. Its a piece. Fitment isnt all that great and rattles a lot. Personally, I would go custom. I had mine custom built with 3'' mandrel bent piping, fitment is awesome, and only cost me 65 bucks. If you're curious why it was so cheap a friend that runs a muffler shop hooked me up and i paid him under the table. He told me it would have cost closer to $150 which is still cheaper than most y-pipes and you can't beat the fitment with custom.

    I guess I got lucky cause my pacesetter ORY fits perfect.

    Mine lines up absolutely perfect. I did get the Mufflex hanger though, so maybe it stops it from banging. I ordered it with my headers and ORY as a precaution because of all the stories I've read about banging the floorboard.

    I just had my jet hot lts and catted y-pipe installed with gmmg exhaust and let me tell u it sounds awesome. The perfect matching set i think. Not too loud and sounds very throaty. The whole system cost me 1800.00$ and well worth it.
