Keep in mind that painted headers run very very hot, the ceramic coating is worth the money in my opinion, they do a great job in staying "cool"pretty much stock. i plan on changing that so i dont want to do the most basic setup that ill have to change later so maybe 2 2 1/2 inch pipes?
well the ypipe is 130 alone and the duals would just be bended piping i can get done by a friend from a muffler shop. im guessing it would be better flowing and sound better (going for deeper and louder).
as for the headers i might just go with painted since its about 140 bucks cheaper than ceramic.
i will also be removing the intake manifold thanks to a oil leak. any gains in porting it or getting a lt4 intake? from what ive heard these intakes are really restrictive/:
What are your plans and goals you want to meet with your car? Because lets say down the road you wanna do a cam swap, your gonna need those headers so the engine can breatheso if i go ceramics is the hp gain really worth the 800+ bucks including the exahaust? is there anything more worth the money?
