With headers you're gonna have to remove the stock cat or get a high flow cat cuz as soon as it hits the stock cat it will slow it right back down and loose all the power it had

Ill prob just remove the stock cat. Would it be best if I let a muffler shop to install the headers and y pipe, or if I install the headers and let them do the rest?
Should the headers and y-pipe bolt directly into the exhaust system?

Yeah, you can install it all yourself but you will need somebody to weld it up to the old exhaust system when you're done so you don't have leaks. It should bolt right up to the stock system but you're gonna need some more pipe for where the cat was

I'm partial to UMI products. If you're going to spend the money to overhaul your suspension, go with the body-mount torque arm with drive shaft loop. Otherwise, do not bother getting the DS loop.

I'd also suggest the adjustable LCA's along with an adjustable PHB so that you can center the rear correctly due to wheel changes, lowering, etc.

Ive been debating:
Fill and paint the holes in the stock grille. Gloss black with Red CAMARO inserts
OR
Just removing the stock grille all together.

The reason I like the 1st option is because then it will at least match the back end of my car.

Thoughts?

The second -- for the same reason you stated. Maybe paint it gloss black and use the same color insert that you used for the rear.

I'd remove it and just have the holes filled. Cleanest look IMO.
