I think Flowmaster is what a lot of people use here. You looking at headers also?

Check out the Flowmaster website. I know that they make some kits, perhaps you might find something there. I do have aFlowmaster 80 series muffler available. I purchased and installed last week, did not like the sound so I removed it. Drove with it in the car maybe 20 miles. Interested, make me an offer [email protected].

Flowmaster is better know for smoothness of sound, but Magnaflow is performance oriented. I feel from Magnaflow you get the best combination of performance and sound. There is an All About Exhaust Sticky in this forum, read up

I personally think the differences are NIL, but i'm sure someone'* gonna spout off figures that show 1 & 2 HP increases. All have a different sound, so pick what works for you.

Since no one answered your question yet, there is no complete system yet. You have to buy the headers, cat, mufflers on their own, then have them put in, or get new tubing.
