Default What exhast

Im new to ls1 and i just got my 02 ss and wanted to know what would be the best headers and the best catback to use. I was thinking about useing either kooks, slp, or qtp headers and wanted to know which one was the best bang for the buck considering i didnt want to spend more then $1300. For the catback i was thinking either slp loudmouth or gmmg. Thanks for the help.

will you be installing it yourself or does the 1300 include labor?

For the catback i would recommend gmmg over the loudmouth cuz it is VERY raspy at wot and still pretty damn loud at low speeds in comparison to all other cat-backs. why not consider borla? gotta love that sound.

Headers, go with Kooks or Hookers IMO.. on a budget? go with pacesetters.. just my .02

stay the hell away from the slp headers if you want bang for your buck, before i knew what i was getting into i got the slp header and y package, I loved my lm1 and jet hot's are the way to go imho, which I THINK are the kooks. I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong

go to http://www.ls1sounds.com and check out some of the different combos there and see which sounds best to you. IMO I would say Pacesetters, no cats and dump it! It's the cheapest setup and sounds badass too but it is LOUD!.
