I also would get a tune next , a good tune will prove to be your best mod

firmer shifts , changed shift points etc that alone on a ATX is hugh then the tune for your car , figure in a wide band air fuel gauge as well

I don't have the stealth system myself, just the FSWERKS race exhaust and an obx race header. It is loud as hell. But I don't mind the noise. The header adds a whole new level noise pollution, if you are in the city you will need the stealth exhaust. I live deep in the woods and raise hell up and down the roads with no neighbors to worry about. Although in town when I do get those WTF looks, I don't mind. I hit the gas just a little harder. I can't wait to see how much my new cams change the sound.

Yeah it's really all personal taste. I ran the obx header with fswerks street exhaust and thought it was pretty good sounding not rice loud nor quiet. I also ran the header with a magnaflow HFC and thought it sounded really great too.
