yeah, under your hood. you already have headers. for exhaust, get some high flow cats and replace the middle resonator with a muffler of your choice, and run pipes out the back.

theres a 6-700 dollar set out there made for tbirds. then you have long tubes which give us a nice torque gain, but then you have to modify the steering shaft to clear them

From what I've heard, if you port out what you've got now, it will handle decent amounts of power. IIRC, Thomas ports them out and all that good stuff for a pretty reasonable price. I think short of the kooks that are offered there, your options are next to none unless you're wanting to deal with the steering shaft.

yup, that's not a bad price for headers, but as stated above you have to deal with the steering shaft issue to run 'em. for aftermarket exhaust just take it to a muffler shop and have them hook up a custom bent exhaust, it'll prolly be about three bills for the exhaust, could be more or less depending where you go.

255rwhp on stock 96-97' headers and they showed NO signs off holding me back, should be all you will ever need for an N/A engine setup.
