A non cat midpipe is pretty inexpensive. I got the 1 7/8 American racing headers and their mid pipe. I think I paid $1500. High quality, proper fitment no leaks.

You don't need a bunch of stuff to cure your issues. Most likely some lower control arms and drag radials.

Don't even mess with regular wheels and then put a 17 or18" wheel tire combo on. Just...

You can run the stock plugs with a 75 shot. You'll be just fine.
