|sgtsmasher||i wish that i had gone the correct way imho the first time. i had bought a M2 style hearder off fleebay and a magnaflow 3" exhaust off mandrelexhaustsystems.com the exhaust came with a straight through muffler, (meaning complete straight pipe all the way). i installed both header and exhaust in one day, also took the stock one out as well, what a PIA. but once i got them in... crazy loud, sounded like a stock car. the header and exhaust cost me around $450ish, labor was free (me). then i decided that it was way to loud and i kept getting pulled over. so i bought a 3" HFC (high flow cat) of MES.com^ that was $125 shipped. that was good for a while, then i wanted more. so i got the svt header after a while, $125 with only the dipstick and at the same time i bought a 3" magnaflow resonator off above site MES.com^ $85 shipped. and then i need a new flex and orp for the svt header so i bought a flex off MES.com^ 3" $165 shipped. and then i had an exhaust shop make a custom ORP (off road pipe) that cost me $110 for labor, i had the parts, no to mention i bought 75' of header wrap that cost me $55 total. so yea in the end i paid for it, badly $1,115.00 and maybe some change in there.|

FSWerks Race headers, Flex pipe, and stealth system. Enjoy!
Its loud when you get on it, quiet when your cruising. Perfect.

|Stover||currently all stock with lunchbox deleted, i would LOVE a real 2.5 or 3" setup (planning for frced induction)|

Svt header and Orp used for $220
2.5 Trubendz flex to tip w/magnaflow new for about $400....600$ head to tip

I just got my new set up...
SVT Header, cat, and flex into a Magnaflow 2.25" exhaust. Man do I love it. I still have a small raspy exhaust leak at the flex pipe which I'll get around to fixing hopefully next week but it's great.
I also hooked up both of my o2 sensors, because I could. Ha! The EGR on the other hand...well...that's to be dealt with later.
