I think a 2.5" exhaust is plenty unless you are planning to go above about 800 rwhp.

I honestly think LT headers are a MUST with these V8s (unless you're going with a twin turbo set up later). They are probably the biggest bang for the buck hp gain you'll get.

You could wait on the exhaust if you want to be "thrifty." The headers do add a lot of sound on their own. Exhaust pretty much is only a sound thing. However, I HATED the looks of those awful stock garbage cans, so I got rid of them and said hello to Mr. Borla.
Thanks Em, yea I pretty much have decided that I need LTs. The only caveat to the purchase is I either buy their full system (LT headers, HF cats, exhaust) and get the awesome deal OR I buy their LT headers at full price. Hence the dilemma. But I sent Bassani an email telling them that I am in, so only thing left is waiting to hear back from them about it. I highly doubt I will be going anywhere near 800rwhp (at least for now )
