Those are the highly coveted 'swoopies'. That'* simply the best wheel from the factory for that generation.

On the exhaust, you won't find a cat-back. We have mandrel-bent stainless exhaust from the factory, and you won't outflow it until you hit the 13'* on the quarter mile. Drop a high flow cat in there. That'* about all you'll need for awhile.

Goofballs..lol

I believe I was the first to put swoopies on a 92-99 style and it has become the thing to do. You may like the rims better if you swapped the center caps to the carbon fiber look that I have on mine. I've never been a fan of the cap that sticks out.

I have noticed that there aren't any cat back systems on the market yet. Strange. As for the factory system, I did put it up on the rack the other night and noticed it really looked like a good system. I figure what I might try is to some how polish the tips up a little bit. Nothing too crazy, just a little more shine. "Swoopies" huh? Now I know what they are called. I'll stop referring to them as Goofballs now.

Swoopies are so awesome, they look good even on cars that they weren't intended for!

Tried polishing the inside and outer lip on the factory tips while we were vlearing the lamps. Didn't look as good as I thought they would. So I flat blacked them. Thinkin' the all black underneath theme looks good enough.
