Exhaust and Headers Job

Whatz up SPI fans. Here is the deal. I want to put an after market exhaust (catback, the whole deal) along with headers. Are there any websites that u guys and girls might recommend that I could these mods from.
Also, I found this shop that will actually install everything on my car, including piping and flanges. It will go from 1 3/8" to 2.5", but here is the catch. This guy doesn't have stainless stell, instead he uses aluminum. What do yall think, should I go for that, and what are the drawbacks anyways?

Focus Sport me friend. BUt you should really read the STICKIE titled SPI GUIDELINES it has almost all the information your looking for. I would suggest Race Headers, High Flo Cat, and Focus Sport exhaust

Sorry to tell you but a Race Header requires the removal of the cat. Which means if you get a Race header, you can't get a high flow cat. If you want to stay legal go with a shorty header like Ford Racing's and get a high flow cat and a cat-back. If you don't mind being loud and being illegal, then get a race header, and cat-back. Don't forget that a flex pipe would be a good idea too.

Hmmm, I didn't say anything about the shorty header making you remove the cat.

hey guys, are there any websites that u would recommend. Also, about that aluminum part, I have no idea if he makes it or just installs it. I know it sounds kinda shady, but its only $80 for the whole thing. And yeah, I do want to stay legal, stupid california laws.......................:)
