You do know the headers won't reach the stock cat-back right? You'll either need some pipes to reach or you could do some small resonators like the obx come with. You'll probably get to the install way before me. I bought the headers because of the price but it'll probably be awhile because I have some other things I have to install before that.

Is that the same set up you were running?

Here's my vid with headers and MRT V2.

Love the sound! Hey, any chance you're going to be attending texas camaro revolution?

Ok, so you already know what to expect.

Thanks! It's sounding better with more miles on it now. I just started getting a CEL that's either a leak, a bad tank of gas (started after I filled up at a new station), or it's because of the high flow cats.

But you can see that they say the cheapest they've found is 220 for just the header painted black. That's what amazon's price was before that. So I think it's just the header. The off road are 343

Eh, nothing really. No smell, 3-4 hp less. I just don't want the rasp so I'll probably going with those. Might do some research on the random tech ones, some solo ones, or even some magnaflow ones.
