    Stainless headers/cat-back with HC

    I'm just putting the car back together after a heads(PP ported ls6)/cam(224/224-112) swap and i also have a 90/90 FAST intake setup.. I need some advice on what headers/cat-back to get. Im using the car mostly for show, so a nice (lasting) finish is preferred, but i also want nice clearance, cats, sound and gains..

    I've been looking into Dynatech SuperMaxx stainless steel header system which includes Y-pipe and cats for 1495$. Abit much money but i've heard good things about them. Any opinions about them?

    For the rear exhaust I've considered a Magnaflow system simply because its stainless and cheapest. Borla looks nice too, but cost twice as much as Magnaflow.. Is the adjustability really worth the money?

    Whats your opinions about this combination?
    I just wanna make sure before i spend all that money..

    Thanks for a great community.

    +1 for the magnaflow, i have it with stainless steel LT's, no cats. just not h/c. i bet you'll love the sound, i love mine, nice and quiet for cruising but opens up at WOT.

    my buddy has a 95 z with LT's, no cats and the borla i think it sounds like ass personally, too loud and a lil raspy

    Look into the XS Stainless headers, they are well built and I think the only T321 stainless headers which is the best material available. I know their older design had some issues with the driver's side header collector being angled too high and real close to the floorboard. I put on a set of used headers of theirs and they look great and seem to fit well. They do have a new design that might fix that problem and they are priced around $4-500.
