    This. Also, I do agree with the others. Looks like yours stick out a tad further than most of other CME's I've seen. See if you can tuck them in some more if possible. Otherwise, I like it, a lot.

    Thanks guys.
    I agreed with you. I think they stick out just a little. Probably an inch to the inside should look better.
    I will def get them fixed but I'll do it when I get my custom Y pipe after the LTs.
    On the muffler it sounds good but not the way I expected talking bout how quiet it is.
    Hopefully with the LTs sound louder.
    I have friend he had a trans am with LTs no cats and magnaflow. It was the perfect sound for me. So I'll expect the same when I get it done.

    On the tips I was also thinking on getting powdercoated black.
    I'm not sure yet. Should look good,
    I have to think bout it...

    maybe powder coat them but leave the flat part on the tip/edge of them pollished. Just throwing ideas out there, Im really not sure if it will actually look good or not lol.

    Lol thanks.
    I was thinking to paint the inside of the tips since is going to get dark with the
    Smog coming out if the exhaust.

    If I paint them all black is there any way to remove the paint
    And make them look good again?

    Sand blasting would take the paint off.

    LT's over stock manifolds will be MUCH louder.

    As long as you have cats it wonít be too annoying. But then again, I have an off road y and a bullet muffler that dumps before the axle and donít think its too annoying

    With your existing exhaust set-up, I think you'll take liking to the Magnaflow sound with LT's.

    As far as sand blasting, there are several different type of media one can use to "blast" something. Just make sure when you take it somewhere to have it blasted (if you paint it and decide to remove the paint when you don't like it), inform them of your intentions and they will know which media to use to strip the paint.

    You could probably just use a finer grit sand paper also to remove it. It doesn't take much to remove spray can paint. Powder coating may be a little more difficult.

    Thanks guys.
    I think should sound good with the LTs.
    One question. I was looking at the cheap eBay highflow cats.
    Anyone had a experience with those??


    On the tips I'll give it a shot, I'll just paint them if I don't like it i sand it down or use steel wool.
    Either way I like the way it looks.
    I'm happy with the CME

    I had in mind pacesetter, or eBay headers. They look good the price is right for me.
    What u guys think bout them?
    I was also looking at some. TPS LTs ( I think that's the brand )

    pacesetters are good for the money, some have luck with ebay headers but there is an issue some have of the air/egr tubes breaking off but thats easily welded and there are usually fitment issues as far as the k-member goes. what kind of climate does your car usually see?

    Thanks Alex.
    I heard about alot of people having good luck with eBay headers. But I'm not sure if I wanna try em out. The pacesseter I like em but after awhile they look
    Ugly, the paint comes off.
    Here in Cali is most of the time sunny, average is 60-85f
    I'm planning on not driving it during winter time..

    When I get my LTs I'll delete the EGR on the AIR PUMP not sure yet

    Ive had my pacesetters in for about 5 years and Im ready for new ones. Lots of rust everywhere and they were the coated ones too. My next set will def be stainless thats for sure. Im slowly learning that you get what you pay for most of the time.

    That's one thing I don't wanna deal with. If I'm going to have those problems with pacesetter then I have to think bout it twice.
    eBay headers are stainless steel which is good but Many people say fitment is horrible. Some others say no problems at all.
    I have heard people saying the same thing about expensive headers. Like hooker and kooks
    That case I rather go with eBay LTs they look okay and the price is bout right to me

    looking good man and ebay headers are hit or miss i have 2 buddies with them and one of theirs went in perfectly the other had a hell of a time. i have pacesetters and the fitment is wonderful IMO and for the price thats the route i would go
