You'll get some good reviews. I ended up ordering a set of FVD Long Tube headers and Cats. It was between them both and only went with FVD because was very happy with an exhaust I bought a few years back for my 997.2 Turbo. Can not go wrong with either if LT is what you are looking for. People have also been happy with Fabspeed.

BGB hooked me up with the CG sport version. They are jewl-like in quality. GMG and CG have similar design in that the catted version has longer tubes than other products. Fabspeed, GMG, and CG use the same cats from HJS (at least i assume given that HJS is stamped on the product).

Both BGB and Fabspeed have great customer service in my experience. Fabspeed is actually a bit on the maniacal side w/r to service (in a very good way).

BGB was here day 1 trying to put together options for us, so I HIGHLY recommend them as the source for CG products.

You wont go wrong with the Cargraphic headers...as mentioned they quality is A+ and they do provide a good boost of power in the mid-range

^^^Seeing though as you guys had a $1000 off a product, I wouldn't be surprised you had awesome prices on cargraphic products

Please send me a PM quote for Cargraphic RaceX exhaust (I think it have to buy the overaxle pipes too...), thanks!

My only problem with LT (which is what I REALLY want) is that the ECU needs to be flashed, and this is a huge no-no for me.

I also don't feel like spending the extra $1,000 on cats.

Decisions, decisions....

Long tube doesn't need a re-flash or ECU update.....Race or Catless headers do.
If you go for Cargraphics race headers, which are cheaper and produce more power, you also get a great slip fit collector.

most catless headers use most of the available space before the collector, so you could say all of them are Long Tube.....on the Sport or cat versions the placement of the cats can vary.

Makes sense. I'd like to do the catless version if there is any way that I can get by without tuning the car.
