Ya, long tubes.
It's funny but here in Ca you can't buy headers with high flow cats, because of emissions, but you can get headers with no cats at all.

When I fist put the headers (with MRT2 mufflers) on it wasn't really raspy but it was so loud that I was embarrassed to drive it.

I got the magnaflux resonated X pipe and that made it way safer to drive without attracting attention.

also did this mod last weekend, i wanted more cool air to my open air cold air intake soo i went to lowes and bought some AC ducting and routed it from the zl1 lower grill to my cold air intake.....after some aerodynamic testing with a leaf blower i determined that it will work and delivers cold air directly to the intake......I call it playing engineering! lol
