Pace setter makes the most reasonable 3800 f-body headers from ~$240 and up if you do deside to go that route.
Other companies make them also (few) they are usually about double the price of the setters..

Leave the engine and exhaust alone and go for handling.
They sound like angry weed wackers no matter what you do.
I have WS6 swaybars on my V6 DD,cut 1/2 off the front coil and removed the isolator in the rear.
275/40/17 out front and 285/35/18 in the rear on Corvette Speedlines painted black.

I don't see a problem with modding the 3800.. Just not going to see big gains in N/A form..
Simple moog HD end links tighted, and a good set of sticky auto-x tires will achieve handles "on rails" effect without the need for lowering or WS6 sway bars..
Many folks have done headers and cam work and like the results..

I've got the pace setters with high flow cat i noticed difference big difference personally the flowmaster sounds deeper if that makes sense an has lil bit more of power in the pedal I've done a ton to my 3.8 but only cause I've got Hella deals on parts and do most the work I've ran out ideas of what to do but Im not doin turbo id rather invest that kinda money on a V8

He just got into the 13's and he blew it up(spun rod bearings)
I was going to do a Magna Flow CB but it will now go on the TA(its a V8 system)
I like the 3800 its relatively quiet and civilized,its a nice change of pace to get into my quiet DD.

My headers did same thing, me an a friend just ordered powder coating kit and a electric stove so soon ill be powdercoating things for the bird. Already decided ill do headers valve covers wheels an calipers figure calipers white everything else black an i like my 3.8 and list of things I've done can't wait to get an ls1

I don't think powdercoating works on headers. I think the only thing that works on headers is ceramic coating because the headers get hotter than any oven ever would...

didnt knnow that thank you

Yup that's why the paint they put on them flakes off..
Companies will paint and oil cover things to give them shelf life..
So as not to rust or corrode while sitting waiting to be purchased in a warehouse like in an auto parts store..
Headers reutinely see cherry red with just one sustained WOT..

A good performance chip, possibly a $300 k & n cold air intake, upgrade your pully system. loose some weight like the spare tire/jack in the back!

I had a 2001 Camaro V6. Bought it brand-new back in the day. I did a lid with K&N, removed the MAF screen, B&M short-throw shifter, Harlan shift light, Dynomax exhaust, BMR STB, 1LE sway bars, panhard rod, LCA's and SLP take-off limited slip. Car drove great, ran great and got over 30mpg on the highway. Not much more I could have done without installing headers or going into the motor itself.2001 Chevy Camaro Z28 A4
