Best header and cat back combination?

So currently I am running (until further inspection when i get the chance to look under lol) the Borla Atak axle back exhaust system I think with standard headers and midsection. I love the sound of the Borla Atak but like most, want a louder, throatier and deeper sound at idle and under load. So I am looking at headers and midsection but just not sure on what would be the best option/combination with the Borla. I am leaning towards American Racing or Kooks headers at the moment. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated guys

I have american racing headers, no cats and borla atak. Very little if no drone and it sounds amazing. Very loud but bearable. I love it i wouldnt change it for anything else.

Awesome! Have you thrown any codes by not using the cats?

For the money Kooks would b my choice hands down best quality header out their. If you want a real loud American Muscle system you can't go wrong with Kooks. I think we can do Kooks for near the same cost as anything else too.

Yeah, that's the vibe I have been getting and as I don't want to throw any codes when I put the headers and mid section on, Kooks looks like the best option for both price, quality and sound. Now, do you guys do the RHD headers and if so, what kind of price would I be looking at?

(I am located in Australia hence the need for RHD Headers lol)
