That'd work & fit great. Two stealth's in line. Its great that fwerks put the flex pipe flange real tight. My Borla muffler is longer then the stealth & fits great, behind it. 2mufflers & a resonator w/ a 2.5'' SS Borla system.

Out of all of my mods the header alone made as much of a difference as all of the other performance mods combined!

I concor w/ that. Get a header & your looking for a stealth.
I agree with this 100%!
In total I have spent over $800 in the several times I have changed my exhaust until I finally got the tone with the noise level I wanted. I wished I would have gone stealth the first time being that I ended up adding a header. Rather than spending all that money modifying my trubends exhaust 7 times total... Now I have 2 mufflers and 2 resonators under my car(= but it sounds damn good

Most are stainless steel and are great. a less expensive option is aluminized. still works fine, but runs the risk of rusting and not as durable a material.
