The only problem with buying a mid-pipe first is that you will need another one to fit new headers (unless you get shorties)
But headers are a big project with installing. So if you aren't worried about them then just go with your plan. Exhaust is exciting no matter how big you go lol

They are, for good ones and for longtubes. Shorties are not worth it unless your stock manifolds are shot. Unlike the pushrods, the stock manifolds on the modulars are NOT restrictive. For longtubes, stay away from Pypes, BBK had the good sense to just put a kink in the primary by the steering shaft for it to clear instead of... I dunno... designing a primary that didn't need a kink... Really for longtubes you want to look at Kooks, Stainless Works and SLP. I love the SLPs because they are stainless, come ceramic coated already and use slip fittings for the midpipe vs a ball/socket. Price is also the best and the quality is outstanding.

Thanks scotty. I planned on getting longtubes anyway. But can someone explain a little better (no offense brentap, truly just my beginner ignorance) why I should go with headers first? If that really is the case, I'll probably just get everything, headers/midpipe/catback all in one shot then. Thats not too big an issue.


Actually, I get it now.

Anyway, what I'm definitely looking at doing now is getting the SLP Ceramic LT headers and Magnaflow Magnapack catbacks. All I need is the midpipes. I want o/r xpipes, anything I should know before I set my mind to a brand? They're all basically the same price for the O/Rs made to fit long tubes, so what should I trust and what should I avoid?

You could always get one custom made or see if you can make the pace setter one fit. That SLP pipe is nice because its stainless and you KNOW it will fit the first time.

If I go with a different brand am I going to have trouble fitting it with the headers? I kinda figured that might be an issue but im not sure.

I've learned the hard way with longtubes that the mid pipes are very often brand specific.

Gotchya. I appreciate all the help scotty, and everyone else. I'll have to decide if I wanna just get catted pipes or go with Kooks since they make the o/r pipes to fit their headers. I'm set on magnapacks now too.

Also look at Stainless Works if you are dead set on stainless. If you go with aluminized that opens up your options a bit but then you have to worry about aluminized.

I have almost the exact set-up you want. I've got SLP LT headers and magnapacks. But I have a catted SLP x-pipe. Fitment was great with everything and no problems.
If you want an o/r x-pipe to be louder, trust me you don't need it unless your trying to hurt someones ears lol.
Mine is very loud especially at WOT

Also Mac makes a good set of Lts for your car. Just another option to look at.
