Santa is coming and I'm not sure what exhaust I want to run on my 2002 Z28.

The plan is to replace the entire system, headers, Ypipe, and cat back. I want to keep the stealth approach for the car.

For headers and Ypipe I'm looking at are QTP or Kooks. I'm leaning towards Kooks because I've heard the y-pipe fits better than the QTP Ypipe. I've also heard american racing is making headers which are suppose to be pretty good. Anybody have experience with them? In talking with TEA (the people who ported the heads) they recommend running a 1 7/8" primary on the headers. They say in back to back dyno testing they pick up power for the entire rpm range.

Ypipe will be either QTP or Kooks. Most probably Kooks to go with the Kooks headers. Either way I want the Ypipe to have cats to keep the emission folks happy. QTP has a flowmaster merge collector in the Ypipe which I think is better but I've read too many horror stories about the fitment of the QTP Ypipe. Is the merge collector really worth that much?

Cat back I would like to run the SLP dual / dual but they don't make them anymore and the used ones are either too much money or in crappy condition. My next choice is to run the Hooker cat back system which is a tad louder than the SLP. In the I-pipe I plan to run an electric cut out which I already have.

Since there exists a dual exhaust transmission cross-member for your car; why go with the Y-pipe?. A set of minimal 3-way cats (3" ID two chambered) and a 3" X pipe aft of the torque converter into true dual tail pipes would have better breathing characteristics, and to tone down the volume of your favorite brand of chambered exhaust (I personally favor Flowmasters, but I don't sell them, and most people now praise the virtues of DynaFlow) I would recommend a set of Chrysler Hemi resonators (straight through glass packs basically without the fiberglass bats as they use stainless steel wool) with stainless steel tips.

I used the Chevy BowTie on all my cars (these aren't the brand I chose) but they look like this:

Point taken.

I know it is tough in the off season to keep it going. I think the track could have been open till now actually. They should consider at least till the end of November weather permitting. It was int the 50's and sunny today geese. Rolling Eyes
