    why do you need to keep the stock cats and y? Shorty headers are only going to give you a small gain and aren't really worth the $$$. Get some long tubes.

    So what. longtubes are illegal in all states i think, but that doesn't stop anyone. I mean does your emissions actually do a visual of underneath your car. If not, then your good as long as no codes are flying. Im w/ 99bluez on this one. Go for the roaring unprecedented power of longtubes. You will not regret it!

    Pacesetter, Edelbrock or JBA shorties, they will run you quite a few hundred dollars, which ever you choose to go with

    Pacesetter makes emissions legal coated longtubes. Comes with EGR and AIR fittings. When your done, just have a muffler shop weld up and new cat. That's how you do it with emission control areas. It'll pass visual and sniff test.

    I really think you should seriously look at the EDELBROCKS...Man..they are really well made and coated very nicely..I have seen other's and they DO NOT compare...they are a little more $, but i doubt much.....think of the long run if u plan on keeping the car.....really man...

    I say, if you gonna go through the trouble of any type of header install, just get the emissions longtubes. Plus, pacesetters coated are cheaper than most shorties even.
