Total newb question about exhaust

    Good day all. I just got a set of dual flo pro V force exiting out the back on my 97 Sierra 5.7l. Since the exhaust setup on that was already two pipes to the cats, no Y pipe, and its 2 pipes from the manifold back does that make a true dual? I didn't bother with the high flow cats after reading some of posts on the merits of it. I was wondering what kind of differences I might expect in sound or performance if I put headers on now?

    Its true duals if there are two separate pipes(one fom each header) all the way out to the back, which that sounds like what u got. And as far as headers go, they will all make your truck run better and sound better too. But beware that they're all tuned different and are different lengths and sizes for different power curves. But headers are deffinitaly a good choice.

    Ok Thanks a lot there friend. I will be getting headers when the ol income tax refund rolls around. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what headers I should be getting for my 5.7l 350 Vortec?

    In my opinion, the only headers ive ever liked were Hedman, Edelbrock, and Pace Setter. All great choices.

    I had edelbrock headers on my trans am, they looked like hell after a few thousand miles, but sounded amazing and added power.

    I have heard if they are ceramic they will last a long time and work well.

    Stealth is right. Ceramic is the only way to go because chrome or painted headers always seem to flake off or start to rust. Ceramic is expensive but the only choice.
