Default Header recommendations for 2017 GT

Hello all, looking for some recommendations on what catted headers to pair with my current MRT H-pipe and Roush axle-back setup on my 2017 gt. In addition to the power, I知 looking at take my exhaust note up a notch but maintain the deep tone. I知 not a fan of rasp. I want to stay catted because I知 in jersey and don稚 want to have issues with inspection. Thanks in advance brothers.

Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy your stay.
As for wanting header advice, you should post in the S550 section, you should get more responses.
As for headers I'm a fan of the Stainless Works brand, you may even want to sell what you have and get the complete package from them sounds great.

Had / have LT's with catted X pipes on both GT500's.
As New Jersey is an inspection state, I went with Kooks, their " green cats " pass inspection here.
My 11 went thru State inspection in 2014 & 2016 with no issues, my 14's first inspection is in Sept., I expect no issues..

Interesting, never heard green cats before. I知 assuming that痴 just another way of saying that they are kooks headers that keep the cats? Or is it different than a catted header?

" •Must Be Used With Kooks LT Headers
49 State EPA approved Catalytic Converter
•These products are not legal for sale, installation, or use on licensed vehicle in the state of California. And they do NOT meet CARB compliance
.
Kooks makes High Flow Cats that do not / won't pass N.J. inspection..
