You're gonna look for 2 1/4 exhaust, 2 1/2 should bolt up as well.

This is my set up and the cheapest way to go. Not that they are cheap this place sells it the cheapest. I didn't like flowmaster is rubbed my axle and always seemed like it rattled a lot and I hear that a lot from flowmaster. Plus it says flowmaster is bolt on but in a month you will be going to a shop to get them welded on. MAC is a true bolt on design with real chrome rolled tips. I also attached a video.

Yes took me about 3hrs to do it all. Yes I have stock headers. Long tubes aren't necessary until you get more power. The stock headers work well. The hardest part of this job is taking off the stock mid pipe. The passenger side is hard to get off the header make sure to use pb blaster. Lots of people say to get a torch and heat up the studs until they are cherry red and the bolt comes off easy. I had impact tools and wobble extensions that worked great. It takes some time on the cat back but as long as you just snug the bolts so you can adjust the pipes and when you get it where you want it tighten all the bolts beginning at the mid pipe back so you can adjust as you go. It's really not that hard just on you back for a while.

If you are wanting long tubes in the future then you will be wasting money now. Will need a different midpipe for longtubes.

A tune is not necessary. Mil eliminators should turn off the check engine light.

Hi, i agree with Lowflyn. The 2 1/4, 2 1/2 H-pipe will work with the stock header.

18 mm non foulers work for the check engine light when you install o/r x or h pipe.and only cost around 5 dollars. Not 50 to 70 dollars.
