Can you identify my headers/x pipe?

    I got this car from my dad and the guy before him didn't really tell him any info about the mods that were done.

    They headers look like LT kooks and the x pipe seems to be kooks also (all 3"), but I'm not sure.

    I'm trying to quiet the car down since it is my DD for now, so I'm thinking about trying a catted X pipe. I also know my dad cut out the old mufflers and put some generic magnaflows in there, but it's still too loud.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Not kooks because kooks is SS. That looks to be MAC, SLP, BBK.

    To be honest they look like kooks headers (the way the primaries collect is a slip-on design (older style kooks))
    It just look like they were ceramic coated and whoever did the coat job did a real bad job

    Well I believe instead of replacing the entire cat-back, he just bought a magnaflow standalone performance muffler, cut out the old one and welded the magnaflow in.

    And thanks for the responses guys. I was thinking kooks because I don't see many options for slip fit headers.

    I'm not sure what to do about fitting a catted x-pipe, besides taking it to a shop (which I try to avoid since I'm pretty good with mechanics).

    Worst case is I can put a whole new 2.5" system but that definitely isn't cheap.

    You can easily have cats welded in or clamped in. Below you can see my x pipe with cats (although the cats have been hollow out).

    My kooks are stamped with a kooks logo plate, did the older one have that?

    I think so. I will have to look on mine but I think they have the logo welded on the driver side top primary tube
