Default Advice on Trans Am Parts

Well, I don't think it will be too long before I get the trans am started and working properly. Once that happens I need some new headers and exhaust (some parts of the exhaust might have holes due to rust, and my friend keeps making the thing backfire and blow fire balls out the rear end). I know that when I replace the carb I need probably 600 cfm holley, but I'm not sure on what exhaust system I want to go with. I've heard flowmaster, borla, and others, but which ones would be the perfect match for a carborated 86 Trans Am with a 350?

I think I might be making some pretty good money this summer, so I'm willing to drop the cash for true dual exhaust. (unless thats just a rip)

Hooker headers are cheap, no frills, headers. Cheap as in, some common models under $200.
