I am very happy with the CX kit overall, the headers are great, the y pipe as well.
It is only slightly lower than the frame rails. The tricky part was the tranny mount, but doable.
Putting in a cutout after y pipe then custom 3 inch rest of way, favorite muffler anyone?
Single exhaust.

I like the sound of the borla muffler I have on my z. It was nearly identicalsize wise to the factory muffler. It kept my semi stealth look going til you smashed the gas haha! Checkout my build thread, it has the part number for it. I think it was like $75 or close to that.

Borla 40359 Pro XS if you're searching for clips on YouTube for the sound.

I run a Borla XR-1 oval 3" straight thru in the stock location on my Z. It is more quiet than my truck which runs a 3" Magnaflow, which has to be turned off going thru a drivethru for my order to be heard.

Out of curiosity, how far does the header collector hang down below your frame rails?
