Hey guys,

I know it has prob been covered before but when I search I can't find much on the VT 5.0L. I have just bought one and it is a stocker so 1st mod is the exhaust. I'm thinking of just doing cat-back at this stage and possibly high flow cats.

Is it worth doing the headers aswell considering the cost for performance gain?

What is the best system to go with? or what do most people recommend and size? Also interested with opinions on headers. what sort of power do you guys usually gain with just a cat back and is there much gain with headers?

I want it to have a nice sound..loud but not redicolous.. any help is appreciated..Im from sth eastern suburbs in melbourne if anyone knows of a good place to go..

cheers,

-Damo
