Actually you have shorty headers stock from the factory. 94-98 have headers 99+ have whimpy manifold. On a stock v6 2 1/4 pipes is more than enough. So dont waste money on headers.

Re: Question about exhaust setups

i got headers for my 99... definately a waste of money. listen to them and get the exhaust and spend the money on something better. i have 2 1/2 inch pipes with 3 inch tips. i think it sounds and looks nice. you shouldnt go with anything bigger than 2 1/2 inches though.

so yeah... 2 inch or 2 1/2 inch exhaust, whatever tips you like (almost every exhaust kit/setup comes with tips though), and no headers

Re: Question about exhaust setups

Until you do a cam & ported intakes & heads, headers are a waste of money.
