Magnaflow, Corsa, GMMG, Borla, and SLP are gonna be some of your more popular Y-Pipe exhaust brands you'll see on these cars. True Dual exhaust is another option you might consider, check out Texas Speed for that. As Ultimate stated, A Lid is A Lid, just pick one you like, or find a deal on. Kooks, Texas Speed, Pacesetter, American Racing, and a couple others that slip my mind at the moment, are some of the popular/better header companies. As far as suspension... the usuals... UMI, BMR, Strano, Madman, ..... just gonna have to take some time and scan all the sponsors over there.... ------------------------->>>>>>

If you're trying to buy headers: QTP, Kooks, and ARH have the highest price tag but are all top notch in quality (stainless steel) and fitment (mines fit like a glove and they just slipped right up). Catback exhausts are all up to you, anyting is better than stock, and anything is better than a flowmaster!! I have SLP Loudmouth 2 and it is very quite with a just a rumble at idle and just purrs with part throttle. Go WOT and it just explodes!! You can also get a cutout for max power out of the exhaust.

Suspension mods: Umi performance,BMR, and SLP has some suspension stuff too I believe? They're just pricey imo. I don't know any other ones for suspension components lol
