Just a quick parts list check. I'm sure I'm forgetting something.
Pacesetter Ceramic Coated LT Header 72C2328
Magnaflow High Flow Cats w/ o2 (2.5") 94136
Magnaflow Tru-X Crossover (2.5") 10781
14" Magnaflow Magnapack (2.5") 10416
4" Magnaflow Stainless Tip x 5" Long 35136
Stage 8 Locking Header Bolts 8906
Fel-Pro Exhaust Manifold Gasket 18250-07023729
Right now I'm pushing about $900, don't want to spend it but I want to do it right this time around. I still have not decided if I want to attempt the header install myself, let alone maybe the whole exhaust install. I'm not sure my local shop will install the headers or if they use stainless tubing, if not I may just ask him what I would need and purchase it for him to use.
Now for a few questions. The LT collector has a 3" id and the rest of my system is set up for 2.5". Do I need some sort of step down? I am not sure exactly how that will work because I will more than likely purchase all the material myself and just give it to the shop to install if I go that route.
I'm also not sure about the stainless tips. I honestly found them trying to push my order to $500 on hottexhaust so I could receive a discount. I would like to have turn-down style right behind the rear bumper, but I'm not sure how possible this is going to be.

Sound wise how loud am I looking? I want it to grumble, but hoping the magnapacks will reduce highway drone over my flowmasters right now. I love the flowmasters sound but if I put this system together I will pull my hair out going down the road.
Thanks for the help everyone!
