Default Headers and Exhaust

Ok guys im finishing up on my the audio stuff i wanted to knock out the big 3 as you guys like to call it. I'm looking at throwing some long tube headers and 2xflowmaster 40's on. I want to know what you guys suggest as far as header brands and what size exhaust and what kind of tips to use. I wanted to go with a matte black color for the headers and a dual 3" exhaust with some tips out the back. Any ideas on what price im looking to pay for the exhaust. I'm pretty sure i can knock out the headers myself with the help of my trusty old PEB Blaster. Also I need to put a K&N CAI on it too. I would like to throw some kind of programming chip in there, but i dont know anything about it. All suggestions would be great and prices would be really really good too! As always thanks for your help as usual!

As far as the cold air intake, I installed a Spectre. I wanted one with a big filter and something that would truly be a "Cold Air" system. I thought the Spectre was the best. the install was a bit of a pain in the A$$. I had to tweak the aluminum bracket quite a bit. then a few weeks after the install an O2 sensor went bad which made the truck idle rough and stall, I don't know if this was related to the intake but everything is good now.

Here is a link to the one I bought...

If I did it again I would get the Spectre Profab. I thought that was a great idea they had!

I will definitely look into that Spectre. I saw the BFI but from the looks of it, it doesnt look like many people have had success in getting there orders. Also thank you for moving my post, today i realized i had probably posted in the wrong spot.
