    Looking to get the full exhayst setup: headers, probably dual set up, new cats & mufflers. Does anyone have headers on their truck? If so, what brand? And do they add much power? Also, what do you figure a setup like this would cost? Going custom, not pre made. Thanks guys

    I am going with jba, a few have recommended them over the thorleys.

    I am going with the stainless header titanium finish and they will be $1500 dollars altogether installed. I realize the price is a bit inflated but I oderd them thru a local shop.

    As for custom headers I asked around and no-one really seemed interested In fabing a set up for me, just kept pushing me towards the premade.

    For most power, stick with a short tube header, and a single exhaust, no larger than 2.5". Keep the cats.
