Installed headers. 2.5in down pipes to 3in y pipe to 3in inlet dual outlet muffler quad tips. Sounds fantastic

Cool! Why does it look like the floor is cut up in the picture of the headers?

I am very interested in finding out where you got your headers. I need to replace mine and am not able to find any anywhere.

Hi guys. I would like to get input on a couple of exhaust issues.

First, what would prevent us from finding a a pair of used V8 headers, and cutting off the appropriate down pipe, and welding up the opening to the collector?

Second, i have heard different views on what is the appropriate exhaust system pipe size for better performance/fuel mileage vs torque. Can you guys give me some input on this?
