FSWerks Race headers, Flex pipe, and stealth system. Enjoy!

Its loud when you get on it, quiet when your cruising. Perfect.

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.
