Haven't seen much with the Gibson exhaust . Looks like a nice piece . Headers system looks interesting .

I like the Gibson systems. Much nicer tone than the Flowmaster systems. It's all pretty subjective, though...pick what sounds best to you.

You'll definitely pay more for the Gibson system than a Flowmaster but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for.

Right on, brotha! You want to save money then throw on some Ractive rice burning product. You want a kick ass system, install a Borla or Dynatech. I think Dynatech products are pretty damn good. I seen their stuff for the Ford F-150 and it looks absolutely fantastic. Don't forget to get a Predator or some aftermarket programmer otherwise your engine won't be running peak.

Well, for a HEMI I'd definitely suggest a Predator programmer but do you have a HEMI, carscars11?

If not, a SuperChips or Hypertech program, intake and exhaust would be good basic performance mods to start with.

I recommend the Gibsons over the Magnaflow, and the SuperMaxx set is great. The guys have it right, you get what you pay for, so it's worth it to spend the extra $$ for a good exhaust system, some cheaper systems don't use 300 series stainless, and they'll fall apart on you.
As far as the AirAid and suncoast hood goes, I absolutely recommend them 100% Have the same set up on my '07 and the hood is wicked, with some minor tweeking it fits great. Would recommend getting some lower psi pistons since the hood's lighter. I didn't and haven't noticed anything, but other have had problems, so better safe than sorry.

I think Suncoast's hoods are inconsistent. At least that's what I've seen from GM's F-Body cars. I don't see how you would need lower PSI pistons, unless it's really that difficult to open/close the hood. Just put some weight into it. :)

If I understand correctly, the lighter weight fiberglass hood has trouble holding it's shape when working against the heavier pistons. The heat of the sun and engine bay allow a little give in the hood which shows up as a bump on the top side.

Wow, I never thought of it that way! Good observation.
