Exhausts don't count for all that much. Most popular are powergetter or HKS. As for headers, get a race header. The dyno proven headers that I heard a lot of positive things about are the Jackson Racing Race Header ($525+) and Toda Race Header ($1000+).

I personally haven't heard how the powergetters sound, but hks sounds really nice. Nice deep sound and not like all buzzing or bee in a can. Once when you get a race header though, it sounds like twice as loud. I have a Greddy which sounds nice w/o race headers, but now...it's loud as hell. I keep my rpms under 3k so it sounds normal, but once when it goes over...it echos and people can hear you from a mile away. Oh, the jackson racing header eliminates the cat, so that has a big factor in the sound. If you put a high flow cat, it will probably muffle the sound a tad bit.

yeah but you either need a type-s exhaust or get an adaptor so it can fit

Getting a race header over a shorty will definitely be worth it. First, I had my exhaust welded since it was an greddy evo and they only make exhausts for the type-s for the time being, then turned around and added a type-s adaptor welded to the exhaust to fit the jackson racing header. Luckily I have a friend who's father owns a muffler shop and did the welding for me for free. You could just have a shop weld an adaptor or the exhaust straight the the race header pipe...I figure around $50-$75, unless that shop just completely overprices. It shouldn't be that much.

If you haven't already gotten an exhaust, just get a type-s one so it will bolt up directly to the header. Save money and time instead of welding.

huh? not quite sure what you're asking? If you haven't already gotten an exhaust, I recommend you getting an exhaust for the type-s so you don't have to worry about welding (will directly bolt on and save quite a bit of time on install), but if you already have an exhaust for the base...there's no point in purchasing another exhaust so just have a shop weld an adapter (will be cheaper than buying an adapter for base exhaust to fit type-s) or have it welded directly to the race header.
