    I second that! Look at Summit Racing. The catback system with the 50 series muffler works great and not too much noise but sounds good.

    emmissions regs

    Careful about emmissions on '96 and newer vehicles, here in CO its more stringent for these than older trucks. Its actually illegal in some cases to replace / move the stock cats. If its a concern, then you need an approved exhaust system to stay legal.

    I'd use a stainless steel header / y-pipe system, as Vortech motors do seem to burn a little hotter than earlier 350s. Sanderson wouldn't warranty a set of there shortys I got for a fj55 / Vortech conversion I did because they were installed on a Vortech motor... Maybe an Edelbrock TES system, and whatever cat back system you like the sound of would work well for your truck... My fj55 was pretty quick with a high performance exhaust, intake and hypertech power programmer.
