Just realized, Pacesetter Headers are a better value than getting a catback first.. So they move to numero uno on my list.

Anyone had any issues with reusing stock gaskets?

http://www.lmperformance.com/79077/1.html about $100 cheaper, The Loudmouth I was lookin at is 389 with free shipping. that's $279 with free shipping. I would just get some O2 extenders and a Y-pipe and call it good. May go with an ORY though, cuz it's cheaper

Thanks 2010SSRS

Thanks for the link bumping that up to the top of my list. Probably another $100 for the Y-Pipe. So it still looks promising for me, since I already have a cat-back. Guess I got lucky haha

Still nothing on the job part. Maybe something will fall through. On a good note I got my grille, strut tower brace, new nose emblem, short stick, and my pistol grip installed this weekend. I will post pictures in my build thread of everything once I get her cleaned up this evening.
