Cams or exhaust?

Im debating on getting cams or exhaust in my '06 gt. I live like 20 miles from brenspeed so they will be doing the work. Debating between frpp hot rod cams or brenspeeds detroit rockers. Or starting with longtubes and o/r x pipe. I hear alot of negative feedback about driveability of cams so leaning toward exhaust... brenspeed was trying to get me to buy the pypes system...anyone have this and do you like the sound? Im leaning toward kooks... any real differences between mid pack setup and high end?

Their Detroit rockets are supposed to be setup for DD, but still badass.

Exhaust first then cams. The cams will benefit much more if the exhaust is opened up

I have the full pypes system. The only downside is they are just kooks knock offs. So the power is great but the fitment is 98%. My Steering shaft touches the header slightly. Oh, and they're not REALLY american. The company is in PA but the Exhaust are manufactured in China.

They produce the power. Proven as well.

Kooks will most likely be perfect. Some rubbing is caused from sagging motor mounts, regardless of brand.

Some people dent (which is silly in my opinion) the Pypes header to push it away from the steering shaft, but I just pried it with a crow bar ever so gently and it does not rub while maintaining no interruption in flow.

Full pypes everything. Pypes LTs, pypes O/R X pipe and Pypes violator axle backs. You can check out my race thread to see how I sound running down the track. I have various videos of cams etc.

Pypes headers are well made. 304 stainless steel with nice welds and a thick flange

I'd say so. Did you get a chance to listen to my car? If not, I can link you.

That is the full pypes exhaust.



This second vid is long but at the end you hear more exhaust RPM in a parking lot.



This 3rd vid, on the 2nd race you get a good sound of it as I run down the track. Corolla in the 1st run is loud enough to overtake my sound in the first run haha.



This last vid is the same exhaust but with the Brenspeed Detroit rocker cams.
