    Kooks question.... again.

    Okay I know there are Kooks threads out there and I have read through a lot of them. I'm sorry for beating a dead horse. But I need some exact recommendations. I just ended up winning a set of Kooks headers with cats on ebay. Now I am deciding what to do about the exhaust. I was just going to order a Magnaflow exhaust with X pipe. But was given the advice I could just order the X-pipe and mufflers and save some money. I can weld so shouldn't be an issues there. So what should I do? With the headers and high flow cats what is my best bet? What would you do? Exactly which muffler should I order if that is the best option? Looking for ideas from the pros!

    Thanks!

    saw those headers in bristol at contemporary corvette. they are pretty dinged up. good luck with the install of them. use magnaflow 10790 xpipe and 11378 muffler. or some magnaflow race bullets in the back.

    Yeah. kinda sucks that I wasn't able to see them first hand. But they were cheap! Hopefully they are not too bad.

    I was watching those
    Yeah, your best bet would be to go with an X-pipe and muflers. I'd throw on some tips, for the looks. Exhaust does very little on this car.
    Good luck with them.

    Hey man, I didn't know you could weld. That makes the decision that much easier to make your own catback.

    Re: Kooks question.... again.

    So the plan is Kooks headers, high flow cats, x-pipe, and Magnaflow 6" race mufflers(14158) with tips. Any thoughts before I order the second half of the exhaust on Monday? Thanks again for all the input over the last couple weeks.
