i have a family friend who will do the job. he has his own shop. why, do you have any suggestions?
Exhaust installsare pretty easy. Honestly if you wanna save a quick buck im pretty sure we might b talking about a garage day soon...I would just put them on there. There are alot of great mechanics in the club im sure someone can help... I just installed a 5Ziegen proracer JASMA Edition on my350 took about an hour...
I think it all depends on what you are looking for. Do your research look around online, dont just jump into something. Think about what you want out of whatever you do. With exhuast are you looking for more power? Do you want it to be quiet or super loud. Loud does not always mean better or faster. I honestly dont know much about art pipes or exhaust or anything. I do know you get what you pay for when it comes to mods, so dont try to take the cheap way out you will regret that or just be disappointed. For exhausts I like Stillen the have a good true dual. HKS gives a bit more power but is pretty loud at least for me. I have a Borla t/d catback on mine. It's the only thing i have done to this car and it sounds almost stock but gives me about 10-15 more horsepower. At the end of the day mods only do so much for a car you have to drive it and get a feel for it. Know it like the back of your hand in and out. Ideally you don't want to just mod for no good reason. You want to mod the car to cater to your own driving style. the 350s and 370s are fast enough stock and I don't think most people realize it. They run out and mod them without even knowing what they can already do. Ask anyone out there my car is bone stock (except for the borla t/d catback) and i still out run most 370s and 350s that are modded. The thing is that you want to know everything your car is capable of stock before modding this way you know just what the mods do and how they will benefit you. Good luck with your work on the car. Remember these z-sport guys know a lot of stuff and are always willing to give great advice dont hesitate to ask anyone anything. It's what we are all here for and I'm pretty sure all of us have been where you are now at one point new to everything.
Go with the pipes bro. I have pondered on an exhaust and I think I will go with test pipes and a dual Magnaflow set up. Custom at the local muffler shop here with an estimate of 250-300 installed from the cats back. Maybe Im old school (and cheap) but spending a ton a money on the likes of Stillen, Borla, HKS, etc... is a waste IMO. Besides, who is going to be looking under your car? Horsepower measurements are roughly the same too on all exhausts across the board.
Then with the plenum/pulley upgrade and last but not least a 75 shot of funny gas.
After a good tune she will be as fast a single turbo'd setup and I can keep her as my daily driver.
Upgrade what you like and spend all you want but scour and research before you start dropping ben franklins is my only advice.

@JFz33-Wow!!! I truly believe and understand what you are talking About. Thank you so much for the advice and opinion. I guess what I'm looking for is just a litttle bit of kick to my Z. I don't want to be the fastest just capable of living up to the reputation of the car. And dont think I go out looking to street race or anything in that nature. I've learned my lesson flipping my BFF's Z28 causing him to lose his leg from the knee down. Maybe just a few upgrades like intake and exhaust. As far as sound, no!!! I don't want my Z loud.
So on a different note I ordered my ART pipes Monday and they should be in Thursday-Friday. I'm so excited. I would really like to install them that same day. Just off hand does anyone know more or less how much it would cost me to install them? Or any recommendations on where to get it done? Thanx again everyone for the guidance and help. It is greatly appreciated.
