    You should only get an ORY if you don't have emissions testings. You need cats to pass emissions.

    The loudmouth I had on my last Z sounded good, and I didn't have any raspy sounds at all. I am actually thinking of getting another one because, for some reason, my longtube headers actually quieted down my exhaust note, and I wanted something a little louder. So I might go with the loudmouths again. Stainless Steel for cheap.

    There are many possibilities you could go with. Check out www.ls1sounds.com for various soundclips of setups people are running.

    Then you will have to shell out extra cash for an install and that isn't cheap for headers. Look to pay between $400-$600.
